‘That is why I resolved to do the Akpaka-Nsugbe road that he pleaded for that his people need urgently.
‘So I promised him I will do the road because in APGA we fulfil our promises.
‘My predecessor, Obiano, promised me of becoming the next governor after him and I also promised him support which I fulfilled. So in APGA, it is a promise fulfilled.
‘So, if you people vote APGA candidates, especially for those contesting for State House of Assembly, whatever thing they present to me will not be delayed, it will be endorsed.
‘But if it were to be from other parties, it will not be given the attention it deserves,’ he said.
The Commissioner for Youth Development, Mr. Patrick Mba, commended the governor for his One Youth, Two Skills Initiative programme, introduced to make the youth self-reliant, saying that the project is yielding positive results.
