He assured the governor that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) representatives in the National Assembly would continue to support him to provide dividends of democracy to the people.
“We have come here on a solidarity visit to show that we are strongly with you. We are with you because we know you are serving your people well.
“We are with you, because since you have been the governor, you have shown your worth and capacity and more importantly, you have shown your leadership skills.
“It is not easy to lead and rise above board and behave like a leader in spite of provocations; that is how leadership should be.
“You have done a lot of good works here and I do not want you to be distracted.’’
He charged the governor not to relent in his quest to provide good governance to Akwa Ibom people, stressing that the people would continue to support him.
