The National President of one of the vibrant APC Support groups, APC Initiative For Good Governance (APC-IGG), Ambassador Musa Mohammed Tsoken has described former Benue State Governor, Mr. George Akume as a real democrat, whose contributions have facilitated national development.
He stated this in a chat with newsmen in Kano, adding that George Akume is a patriotic citizen, who always expressed optimism that Nigeria would be greater, if all hands remain on deck to ensure that all is well in every sector.
“His excellency, Senator Dr. George Akume was a Permanent Secretary in Benue State before he retired and the people of his state felt that all his aspiration is nationalistic and that is why they demanded him to opt for the seat of governorship, where he served for two consecutive terms, with results, which is a clear indication that he is a trusted person per excellence,” he said
Furthermore, Ambassador Tsoken added that he also served as Senator for another three terms, before he was appointed as the minister of special duties and intergovernmental affairs to mention a few of his great contributions towards national development, which have been witnessed.
He said that George Akume is a true nationalist who is always ready to serve his fatherland, especially at present when the new government of continuity is getting ready to climb the ladder with zeal to working with competent people like him.
Ambassador Tsoken stressed that Senator George Akume’s contributions to actualize continuity in governance has proven that his track records would continue to take APC and Nigeria to greater heights under the Asiwaju/Shettima administration.
