“People don’t understand that life is full of ups and downs. Life is not a straight line.
“If it is a straight line, it means you are dead. Even if you have a temporary setback, that shouldn’t make you exude bitterness or hate anybody.
“I can’t go back to the PDP. Why are you people listening to rumour? Why will I go back to the PDP when I am already getting entrenched in the APC?
“I am excited that the President won the election all over the country,” Akpabio said.
