Mr. Godswill Akpabio, former Akwa Ibom State governor and a former Senate Minority Leader has revealed how he ganged up with some members of People’s Democratic Party (PDP) to betray Goodluck Jonathan in the 2015 general election.
In his visit to Buhari, at the Villa, Akpabio said, he loves Buhari since 2015 but was afraid to work for him against Jonathan.
PDP wasted 16 years without any thing to show for, Akpabio said.
Akpabio said the PDP in Akwa-Ibom is dead and waiting to be buried in 2019.
As a result of my dumping the dead PDP, over 260,000 of my supporters have joined the ruling All Progressives Party APC, and waiting to return Buhari in 2019, Akpabio said.
He assured the president not to be bothered over defection happening in APC, there is nobody who is from south-south that will vote for PDP, Akpabio said in a firmed authority.
Early this month, at the APC caucus meeting, Akpabio said the only reason that made him dumped PDP for APC is to help Buhari fight corruption and set Nigeria on a right path.
