  • Why Akpabio Wants To Dump PDP For APC

    A trusted source in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has confirmed that the Senate Minority Leader, Godswill Akpabio, is considering leaving the party to defect to the ruling All Progressives Party (APC).

    Recall that Akpabio met with Vice President Yemi Osinbajo in Aso Rock for two hours and has been pictured on a visit to President Buhari in London on Sunday.

    The source in PDP said that Akpabio was considering leaving the party because the APC—led government was threatening to use the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) against him if he did not work to deliver his state, Akwa Ibom, for the ruling party in 2019.

    The close party source said, “What is happening is that the APC has threatened to deal with him, using the EFCC and he doesn’t want that at all.

    “Although, we are all pleading with him not to leave the party (PDP), but he is afraid. He doesn’t want to be in EFCC’s net at all. He is really under pressure but we hope that he would listen to us.”
