Led by Pastor Bassey James, The centre was established for the training of upcoming leaders and use ‘Akpabioism’ to create awareness in Nigeria, develop leaders and make sure that the legacy of Governor Godswill Akpabio is sustained, as some of the great works he has done in Akwa Ibom is promoted beyond 2015.
Also, it was established to enhance leadership not just in Akwa Ibom but in Nigeria as a whole.
Akpabioism is about good governance and transformational leadership. When people talk about Awoism in the South-West, Zikism in the South-East and so on, Akpabioism in the South-South is to what Zikism and Awoism are in the South-East and South-West geo-political zones respectively. That is what we are trying to do about Akpabio.
In his words, Pastor Bassey said “the concept of Akpabioism was developed so that people can also know that by the grace of God, something good is also happening in this part of the world. Therefore, Akpabioism is a sustainable ideology we have propounded for the development of leaders in Nigeria and the entire world.”
Expected at the event is Governor Godswill Akpabio, digital governor of Akwa Ibom State, leaders of thought, captains of industries and eminent personalities.
You are hereby invited.
