Akpabio, who stated this on Monday during his 51st birthday celebrations with the state PDP members at the party secretariat, Edet Akpan Avenue, Uyo, remarked: “President Jonathan has positioned our party to bring about peace and to ensure that harmony is achieved in our party so that we could continue to win elections and remain the hope of the ordinary Nigerians on the streets.
“President Jonathan is also determined that there is peace in the country.
“PDP has been a fantastic platform in producing leaders.
“And it is the PDP that has brought the uncommon transformation of my state.
“I must thank you all.
“Things would not have been possible if not for the cooperation in the party.
“Because after binging in leaders, they continue to support the leaders.

“To this I say I’m very proud of the party and I must thank you all for making me a model in Nigeria and I must say that all the awards and honours that come my way is because I represent the party well.”
