Senator George Akume, the former governor of Benue state and current Minister of Intergovernmental Affairs, has been assured by some APC officials that he will maintain the party constitution and respect the party's institutions, among other things, ahead of the APC's national convention.

Akume now stands strong over all other aspirants in the race, according to APC leaders, because of his experience, capability, integrity, and support from all stakeholders.

Chief Simone Shango, former National Publicity Secretary of the Nigerian People's Party (NPN), Barr. Sam Ode, former Minister of State for Niger Delta Affairs and a governorship aspirant, Chief Ray Murphy, Publisher of Summit Newspapers, Chief Terlumun Akputu, a governorship aspirant, Prof. Terhemba Shija, Prof. Oserheimen Osunbor, among others, led the delegation.

Chairman of the Senator George Akume campaign team's Contact Committee and Media Group, Chief Simon Shango, who was joined by other prominent APC leaders and media personalities, told reporters Friday in Abuja that if elected, the minister will work to ensure that the APC becomes a model in political party administration in Nigeria and beyond.

Chief Shango said:
"If elected APC National Chairman, Senator George Akume will be committed to upholding the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and the Constitution of our great Party the All Progressives Congress. To this end, he will respect the powers and responsibilities of all organs and officers of the Party, which is necessary to entrench internal democracy and party discipline.

"All the Party organs, officers, and stakeholders need to work in harmony to consolidate our position as the dominant and ruling party in Nigeria. Senator George Akume's vision is an APC which will be a model in political party administration in Nigeria and beyond."

Senator George Akume, according to Chief Shango, has done a lot for our great party, the APC, since the Merger. He is also not a businessman, as he dedicates his Illind to serving the wonderful people of Nigeria. Since a result, we urge our throngs of fans across the country to maintain their composure, "as nothing good comes easy."

"In relative terms and by all accounts including the views of many APC stakeholders and generality of Nigerians, Senator George Akume is clearly the best aspirant for the job. Consequently, such press attacks are not surprising but would not dampen but augment the support of key stakeholders and Nigerians in general."

Akume's media team stated that she will urge women, in general, to aim for positions of power in politics and governance.

"To bolster confidence in APC, Senator George Akume will hold periodic Town Hall Interactive Sessions around the country and convey feedback to the APC Governments at all levels," the media team said.

"He will also encourage the respective APC governments to appropriately respond to major problems raised by promoting and participating in a robust social media communication system to feel the pulse of Nigerians, particularly the youths. Senator George Akume will work tirelessly to ensure that the APC's Manifesto is faithfully implemented."

"The calm, focused and foresighted, Distinguished Senator George Akume will bring his extensive experience and competencies to bear on the job, by thinking and acting outside the box in prioritizing the tackling and solving of APC's myriad problems.

"Senator George Akume is well placed to achieve these goals, having been two-term elected Governor of Benue State, three-term (12 years) Senator including as Chairman Senate Committee on Army, Senate Minority Leader, and currently, Minister of the Federal Republic, among others.

"Senator George Akume will deploy his PR skills to effectively engage and collaborate with all shades of stakeholders to achieve sustainable reconciliation and peace by being firm but fair to all.

"Senator George Akume will devise credible ways and means to create space for youths and encourage them to participate meaningfully in the political arena both in terms of elective and appointive offices at the Federal, State and Local Government levels."

Senator George Akume was born on December 27, 1953, in Wannune, Benue State, and served three terms (12 years) as the Senator for the North-West Senatorial District (2007-2019). He also served as Chairman of the Senate Committee on Army and Senate Minority Leader. He has served as the Minister of Special Duties and Inter-Governmental Affairs since 2019.
