According to Umanah, though the journey was long and quite challenging, Akpabio’s administration had made very amazing steps in the last eight years.
“Within eight years of the outgoing administration, so much has been achieved in all sectors, and encapsulated into what has been generally referred to as the uncommon transformation of our dear state.
