Dele Momodu's Advice / Open Letter To Governor Akpabio

Your Excellency, I find it necessary to write this open letter to you in order to let you know what I had always wanted to tell you as an admirer and keen watcher of your activities and commendable performance in the oil-rich State of Akwa Ibom.

Bisi Akanda talks about Buhari, Jonathan, Amaechi and 2015

You were quoted as saying that the All Progressives Congress is not so keen on the presidency come 2015. What then is your focus?

The only thing I said, maybe, beclouded the one I did not say. What I said was that our preoccupation as an interim leadership of the APC was to mobilise and register members, to conduct congresses and convention to establish a good structure, a durable structure for the new party and that the priority now is the Anambra election and possibly, the Delta State senatorial election which will come up anytime from now.
