“I cannot fathom any reason why on earth, Senator Akpabio should work against the tide, moving at the opposite direction to a place every reasonable person is escaping from.” The Office of the PDP says on Thursday.
The statement was made by the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP through his Media Adviser, Mr. Ike Abonyi.
Secondus described Akpabio defection as unfortunate, adding that the Senator deserves PDP from the people and be prayed for.
“He deserves our pity because whatever would make somebody to choose bad for good is clearly one that he should be prayed for, for salvation especially given the fact that wolves are waiting for his arrival to devour him.
“How on earth can anybody who has his eyes wide open be seen walking into danger knowingly?”
The National Chairman condemned the intimidating tactics implored by the APC to drag people into what he described as a “drowning boat”
NAIJA CENTER NEWS had reported the speculations that the Presidency blackmailed Akpabio to defection in order to avoid prosecution from the EFCC.
According to the information, the Presidency has files on Akpabio over the numerous alleged atrocities he committed when he was the governor of Akwa Ibom.
He “urge you (people of Akwa Ibom) to remain focused and continue to give support to your hard-working governor, Emmanuel Udom, as he remains unrelenting in the delivering of democracy dividends to the people,” he added.
Meanwhile, Akpabio has said that he has no case with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission because the person who petitioned him could not provide proof to back his claims.
“Those petitions to the EFCC have been sorted out. As I stand today, I have not been charged to court because nothing was found against me,” Akpabio said.
