Engr. Ben Akak disclosed this during an interaction with over five hundred (500) coordinators of the Ben Akak support groups in Calabar. He stated clearly that his ambition was to serve the people of Cross River State and not be served. According to him, “We came to serve and not to be served. That is why we submit to the decision of the party. If we came to be served, we would have played politics. We play godly politics where decency, sincerity and truthfulness are our priorities. Our course was not to come, use and dump the people but to serve diligently and build a legacy that will outlive us.”
