‎Sule Lamido, the Party's Presidential aspirant on his own stormed the arena with several branded vehicles with his supporters amidst dancing and drumming.

Akpabio made this known while speaking at the Non-Elective Convention of the PDP in Abuja on Saturday.

"As a party we will continue to work hard not to lose anybody, but will work much harder to bring in more members to the party", he said.

"As a human institution, we can not claim to be ideal and as a political party, our accomplishments up to 2015 are clear for every Nigerian to see, " he said.

"One of the things we will introduce in 2019 is a Student loan scheme to solve the yearnings of Nigerian to youth".

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Saturday extended the tenure of its Sen. We make mistakes but our ability to correct them if what is important.

"I was told that some people were insinuating that if PDP stayed in power, our economy would have stumbled".

Governor Akpabio assured of the PDP's support to policies of the present administration, which were aimed at taking the country out of recession but, however, said that the party would not support any policy that would plunge the country into depression. Have we not come back?

"What a handsome day this is, what a attractive moment this is for democracy in Africa".

"I am impressed by the renewed enthusiasm and commitment of members towards rebuilding the party after the protracted leadership tussle", he said. In short, we cut short the hopes of Nigerians with our failure to manage our success.

"Our brothers who were misled into thinking they are changing party, the doors are open for you". The only thing that shows there is democracy is the legislature and that is why we (lawmakers) are here in our large numbers. It's time, brothers and sisters, to come back home! We are who we think we are, so we must think the best for ourselves.
