George Akume, Minister of Special Duties and Inter-Governmental Affairs, has asked Nigerians to keep faith in the All Progressives Congress (APC)-led government.
Akume spoke at the weekend when a business mogul in Benue State, Moses Ayom, registered as a member of the APC at senator Jack Gyado Castle, Ihugh, in Vandekiya Local Government Area of the state.
Akume, a former governor of the state, who was the special guest of honour at the occasion of Ayom’s defection to APC, said Nigerians should keep faith in the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration and take advantage of his interventionist policies and programmes.
The minister described Ayom as a principal actor in business and politics, adding that his entry into the party has swollen the rank and file of APC.
On his part, Ayom said: “The APC has in the face of dwindling resources and contrived insecurity shown that it is a disciplined, focused and people-spirited party. Today, I am happy to belong to the family of progressives led by the most exemplary of men.”
