EXCLUSIVE: Senator Godswill Akpabio Speaks On His Defection To APC

The former Governor Of Akwa Ibom State and current Senate Minority  Leader of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Godswill Akpabio has debunked the insinuations making the rounds on his purported plans to defect to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC). Akpabio made this known on Saturday in an exclusive interview with Ikenga Chronicles through his Senior Special Assistant on Media,  Anietie Ekong.

Akpabio maintained that he remains the minority leader of the Senate and has resolved not to dump the party even when the “chips are down.”
Recall that  there are alleged reports on social media, that Akpabio has concluded plans to defect from the sinking PDP to the ruling APC.
When confronted with the question from a correspondent via the telephone on the strong indication and alleged move of the Senate minority leader to cross carpet, he swiftly denied it.
“Please may I know what these  strong indications are? Anyway, I can say that there is no iota of truth in such misleading speculations. 
“Senator Godswill Akpabio is the minority leader of the Senate and he is committed to the PDP, “Anietie said. 
The media aide went further to state that Akpabio has never thought of leaving the PDP while describing the alleged defection as ” misleading, mischievous, malicious and totally false.” 
When the correspondent probed further,  he blurted out: ” Please spare me all these.  As I said earlier,  the report is false and should be thrown into the trashcan.  My boss,  Akpabio cannot defect. “
