Akpabio’s Defection

Senator Godswill Akpabio shocked the world a few days ago by posing for a photo with President Mohammadu Buhari and APC leader, Bola Ahmed Tinubu. The senator representing Akwa Ibom North West later resigned his post as the Senate Minority Leader.

Meanwhile the Senator is set to be officially received into the APC later today, Wednesday. This is in spite of silent protests by some APC faithful within the state.
