SENATOR GODSWILL AKPABIO TO DECAMP TO APC ON THURSDAY, VP OSINBAJO TO RECEIVE HIM AT IKOT EKPENE
Ikot Ekpene the home base of senate minority leader and former governor of Akwa Ibom State, Senator GodswillAkpabio, will play host to some big wigs of the All Progressive Congress APC led by Ag President Yemi Osinbajo as they receive senator Akpabio into its fold at an APC rally on Thursday 9th August, 2018.
This was disclosed by the Chairman on Recovery of looted Fund, Barrister Okoi Obono-Obla on his Facebook page. He posted the announcement with a photo of Akpabio and Bola Tinubu along with some APC leaders.
The Senator has been reported to be negotiating with the APC on his defections but has been delayed as his demands where not agreed upon. It cannot be said what the demands are but media speculations said he is asking for the senate presidency, increase allocation on derivation fund among others. Like i said they are mere speculations but it was clear Akpabio was no longer in the PDP when he absented from the PDP NEC meeting organised to receive defectors from the APC among whom were senate president Bukola Saraki, governor Aminu Tambuwal and a host of others. But was holding a meeting with VP Osinbajo at the same hour.
Godswill Akpabio is said to be on his way out of yhe PDP over unresolved differences with his state governor Emmanuel Udom whom he helped installed.
There are assumptions he might be leaving to become a mole for yhe PDP in the APC or might have been dangled with some damming corruption allegation and blackmailed into succumbing to APC but those are all assumptions and speculations.
Good luck to Senator Akpabio but it is hoped he will not be labeled a bad egg after the 2019 elections. He should bear in mind how the nPDP were treated after the 2015 elections till date and why they returned and all the names APC is calling them today. He sgould not believe APC has change and as an adult he should be ready to take responsibility for his decisions.
