The statement reads” Every resident in the state should rally round the present administration in the state to facilitate more development especially in area of viable economic development, further infrastructure developments, job creation, security and peaceful co-existence.

The group hailed the sound judgment that focused on necessary details, constitutional provisions and party’s principles which had sustained APC over the years.
It reiterated the support of all SEGFAST members across the state for the success of Akeredolu’s administration, urging other party’s stalwarts to promote APC interests above individual parochial interests.
