“I can tell you that these people have seen it all in the APC. On behalf of our presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, as well as the National Working Committee of our party, let me tell you that we are on a mission to rescue Nigeria.”

Abang said as a former chairman of the party in the state he was happy to return to the party that he co-founded with others in the state.

He described Ayade as a wonderful personality who did not believe in gossips and back-biting, hence his ability to hold the party together.
