No Plan To Defect To APC – Akpabio

Godswill-AkpabioThe Senate Minority Leader and immediate past Akwa Ibom State Governor, Godswill Akpabio, has restated his loyalty to the Peoples Democratic Party.

Mr. Akpabio, who was reacting to rumours of his impending defecting to the APC, said he was not going anywhere.

Speaking through his media aide, Anietie Ekong on Monday, Senator Akpabio said he was aware of the rumours of that he was planning to cross carpet and join the governing APC, but stressed that the false news was being peddled by APC propagandists.

Some online media platforms reported that the PDP, especially senators elected on its platform, were becoming suspicious of the former Akwa Ibom governor, after they got wind of his purported secret visit to the national leader of the APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.

But Akpabio insisted that he was working with other PDP leaders to ensure that the party became formidable again, adding that he could not be participating in solution-seeking meetings of his party, while planning to defect to APC.
