“We have been in this party for a long time and we have suffered. We have been battered with lies. They have said all sorts of things.

“But you have been my hope — Akwa Ibom people. You have sustained me because I know you are suffering. God has given me a special gift. That special gift is how to deliver you out of poverty.

“Therefore, a special vehicle to take you away from poverty, I want to mention them. For instance, we are going to give a grant of N1 million to 1,000 people per local government area for you to prosper, train and upgrade.”
