Akpabio speaks on dumping APC for PDP

Senator Godswill Akpabio has reacted to reports that he’s planning on dumping the ruling All Progressives Congress APC, for the opposition, the People’s Democratic Party PDP.

Akpabio decamped from the PDP last year and announced his resignation as minority leader in the Senate. He contested for re-election at the February 23rd national Assembly election but lost.

While still challenging the result of the election in court, reports say Akpabio is contemplating dumping the APC.

Speaking with the Nation, Akpabio said:

“People don’t understand that life is full of ups and downs. Life is not a straight line.

“If it is a straight line, it means you are dead. Even if you have a temporary setback, that shouldn’t make you exude bitterness or hate anybody.

“I can’t go back to the PDP. Why are you people listening to rumour? Why will I go back to the PDP when I am already getting entrenched in the APC?

“I am excited that the President won the election all over the country,” Akpabio said.
