The Senator representing Akwa Ibom North West Senatorial district, Godswill Akpabio has threatened that if members of the Senate declare his seat vacant, he would make sure the Senate President, Bukola Saraki and other Senators who defected from the All Progressives Congress (APC) to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will also lose their seats.
Akpabio who recently dumped the PDP and defected to the APC and resigned from his position as the Senate Minority Leader said that a move to declare his seat vacant will prove abortive as it would trigger a domino effect.
The two-term governor of Akwa Ibom State, in an interview with newsmen in Abuja on Monday, August 13, 2018, said that moves to declare his seat vacant by his colleagues, if such should happen, then the seats of Saraki and the other senators of the APC who decamped to join the PDP in July will also be declared vacant.
According to him, the excuse of those calling for his seat to be declared vacant is that there is no rancour in the PDP to warrant his defection, adding that they should also know there is no rancour in APC.
“Any defection from APC to PDP, we will like to declare those seats vacant. As you are looking at me, do I look perturbed? I have not heard the report.
I think that is a rumour because, at the moment, there is no division in the APC. The APC is one family.
If you hear about R-APC, that was not really a political party, that was not a division. It has since been consumed in what they call Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP).”
