Senator Godswill Akpabio, Senate President candidate for the 10th National Assembly under the ruling All Progressives Congress, has called for prayers for him saying there is war out there for him.
Akpabio stated this on Tuesday evening in his speech during a meeting with the APC Non-Serving Senators Group in Abuja.
He also promised that the 10th Senate would work with the president-elect, Bola Tinubu, to pay off the nation’s debts.
Akpabio further thanked the ex-lawmakers for their endorsement and promised to justify the confidence they reposed in him upon election as Senate President.
He said, “I am excited that God is keeping all of you alive. This is a family and I am very proud to belong to this family.
“I want to also appeal that you not only endorse us but support us with your prayers because what I am seeing out there is that it is a war. But I see it as a storm in a teacup.”
“For me, the priorities are very clear: an all-inclusive Senate that will work for Nigeria and that we will all be proud of.
“We must support the administration of Bola Ahmed Tinubu to pay our debts,” Akpabio said.
