The former Governor of Akwa Ibom State and a presidential aspirant of the All Progressive Congress, APC, Sen. Godswill Akpabio has said that before he became Governor, Akwa Ibom used to be considered a ‘pedestrian’ State for people on their way to Calabar or Port Harcourt.

Sen. Akpabio who was speaking on Arise TV added that it was as a result of his “uncommon transformation” of the state that it can now count itself amongst other States with substance in the country, and it is that same transformation he hopes to bring to bear as president of Nigeria.

“What made my governance different was that everybody knew my State, Akwa Ibom was like a pedestrian State where people passed on their way to Port Harcourt and Calabar.

“It wasn’t a destination for Nigerians, but after my stint as Governor of the State, it became a major destination for conferences, for individuals, for tourists, and also for businessmen who needed to invest and they came there and a lot of people in the country relocated.” He said.

The Minister of Niger Delta who recently declared his intention to run for President said he is aiming for an uncommon transformation of Nigeria.
