N’Assembly Will Back Tinubu To Resuscitate Moribund Industries – Akpabio


The Senate President, Godswill Akpabio, has assured Nigerians that the National Assembly will cooperate with President Bola Tinubu to implement policies that will promote the speedy resuscitation of moribund industries across the nation.

Akpabio, who is representing Akwa Ibom North-West Senatorial District, gave the assurance when he visited the lawmaker who represented AkwaIbom North-West in the ninth Senate, Senator Chris Ekpenyong.

Akpabio said the 10th Senate, as currently constituted, would be ready to do all within its powers to support the resuscitation of these industries.

He said, “With the way the President has been exercising his mandate in the last 20 days, I am very confident that hitherto moribund and abandoned industries across the country would be given due attention.

“We should be able to revamp them so as to provide jobs and business opportunities for our teeming youths.

“We would pass the relevant laws that would make the industries come alive for the benefit of unemployed youth and the economic growth of our country.”

Akpabio also used the occasion to thank Ekpeyong for his contributions and support during his campaign, which led to his emergence as the President of the 10th Senate.

He said, “I am here today to thank you on behalf of the Stability Group for the support you gave to us during our consultations for the office of the President of the 10th Senate.

“Not minding the fact that you are a Peoples Democratic Party member, you rose in support of my aspiration despite our political differences.

“Your support went a long way into ensuring victory for us. Politics is over, we have put behind us all our differences, and this is the time to work for the people.

“I am an Apostle of politics without bitterness. I have put behind me all that happened in the past because we need to run an all-inclusive administration, where the interest of Nigerians would be paramount in whatever actions we take.”
