“The sacrifice made by Honourable Betara shows that he has Nigeria at heart and he believes that Nigeria’s sustainability is above his personal ambition.

“Although I am a member of the PDP but I am an ardent supporter of Honourable Mukhtar Betara being from the north east. But I have supported his decision to step out of the race because the north east already has the vice president and number two in government.

“But with the emergence of Akpabio and Abbas as senate president and speaker of the house of representatives respectively, I think there is fairness and balance in the government now. This might not have been possible without the sacrifice and sportsmanship exhibited by Honourable Mukhtar Betara”. He opined.

While congratulating Abbas on the victory, the PDP stalwart advised the new speaker to work together with Betara for successful legislation and leadership.
