Tinubu said the event was not only for celebration and merriment, but to reflect on the immense contributions Akpabio has made across offices as former Governor of Akwa Ibom state, Senator, Minister and now Senate President.

Mrs Tinubu noted that the Senate President has not only shown exemplary leadership which engenders principles of democracy and accountability, but has gone ahead to promote the interest of many Nigerians especially the vulnerable in the society.

“At this auspicious occasion of Senator Godswill Akpabio’s 61th birthday, I send warm greetings and heartfelt wishes. This occasion is not only for celebration but to reflect on the immense contribution he has made to Akwa Ibom and Nigeria as a whole.

“Under his leadership, Akwa Ibom witnessed remarkable infrastructural development, improved healthcare services and educational growth, poverty alleviation and human capital development as he transformed the lives of many vulnerable persons

“Senator Akpabio has continued to serve our nation diligently in the Senate. As the senate president he has displayed exemplary leadership, fostered unity and promoted the interest of many Nigerians, he is committed to principles of democracy, accountability and good governance”. She said

In his remarks, the celebrant and Senate President, Godswill Akpabio appreciated the people who thronged the stadium to celebrate with him and said their presence would encourage him to do more and speak more, not just for Akwa Ibom People, but Nigerians as a whole.

Akpabio used the occasion to clear the misconception that he has created an office of the Senate president’s wife, saying that such never existed

In his words “There is no office called the office of the wife of the senate president, all these things are lies, the office is in the other room. I have tried to be the voice to the voiceless, not just to my senatorial district, but to Akwa Ibom and Nigeria as a whole.

He also used the occasion to commiserate with families of those who lost their lives at the Kaduna Bomb blast and promised to lead other senators to their homes tomorrow for a condolence visit, even as he promised to render all the necessary assistance.

Also addressing the gathering, the Governor of Akwa Ibom State, Pastor Umo Eno congratulated Senator Akpabio on his birthday and pledged his support for his leadership, irrespective of party lines or ethnicity.

The Governor therefore encouraged all Akwa Ibom people and other stakeholders to learn how to support one another for the growth and development of the state.
