He said, “That future that I longed for has started taking shape with what I witnessed here today. You all have demonstrated that given the right atmosphere, you can make this country great and I am happy for that.

 “The major reason I approached governance with anger, when I was elected governor was to ensure that an Akwa Ibom child would no longer be treated as a slave, because the difference between the driver and the man at the back of the car is education.”

He charged Nigerians to be committed to the unity of the country and not allow ethnicity and religious differences to divide us.

“God kept me alive today not by my power, carefulness or righteousness. It is God’s love that has kept me till today. God did not look at where I come from before he kept me alive to witness my 60th birthday. Let us therefore, eschew ethnicity in our dealings with each other because in heaven there would be no designated  place for the Yorubas, Hausas, Igbos, christians nor Muslims.”

Events to mark the 60th birthday of Senator Akpabio included medical outreach, visits to orphanages, hospitals and the Nigerian Correctional Centre, Ikot Ekpene, road walk by the youths, Carol night and  football tournaments.
