The governor urged the youth to vote for Emmanuel and support Jonathan’s second term bid.

“You should all vote for our President, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan, for second term in office as our president so that he will continue with the transformation he has started.

“Emmanuel is the right man to be the next governor of the state because he has God’s support.”

Emmanuel also solicited the people's support and promised that his administration will be for the "youths, women and students by providing employment, industrialization and quality education."

Akpabio is one of the governors set to hand-over on completion of their second tenures on May 29.
