The Coalition for Regional Development Transparency and Good Governance, has urged a former Akwa Ibom State Governor, Senator Godswill Akpabio, to contest the 2023 presidency.

National Secretary of the coalition, Bashir Attahir Lawal, on Sunday in Abuja said, “While names continue to fly across political divide aspiring for the position of President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria come 2023, our curiosity becomes stronger than the fears and therefore, decided to expand consultations to sample opinion of usual stakeholders throughout the six geo-political zones for the best team option for the presidency.

“Shockingly, the direction to which outcome of our opinion poll pointed was to a man whom has neither signifies interest nor in any way declared intention as others already doing or by any practical terms pick presidential nomination form.

“This is despite enormous prove of achievements as a governor moving a backward state like Akwa Ibom from a mere level of a blue print at the time he took over as a governor to a world class master piece driven by a process known by all as an uncommon transformation,” Lawal said.

He said that they were convinced that Senator Akpabio stands out with proven records of achievement and still in the right frame of mind to replicate similar feat across length and breathe of Nigeria.

“We therefore urge the Minister to declare his presidential intention and obtain the nomination forms as we are fully prepared as a group to adopt his aspiration as our project come 2023.
