“Akpabio is on his own, Our Structure Intact”-Akwa- Ibom PDP

The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Akwa Ibom State has stated that it’s structure and officials are intact and have not defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC).


A statement signed by the Publicity Secretary stated

“With the speech of H.E Sen.Godswill Akpabio announcing his resignation from our great party, The Peoples Democratic Party and indicating his immediate membership of the ruling party in the country, The State Executive Committee has directed the ward chairman of our party in Ukana West 2 in Essien Udim local government area to delete his name from the membership register of our party.

For the few persons(all of whom were either his personal staff, relatives or former employees) whom he showcased as co-defectors, their respective ward chairmen are charged to immediately delist them from our register.

We thank the Senator for showing gratitude to us for making him who he was until his defection, but strongly reject the assertion that the entire members of the National and state assemblies were joining him- that was either a very expensive joke or an outright lie,both of which we take serious exceptions to.
The Speaker and other 24 members of the Akwa Ibom state House of Assembly are intact, leaving him with the two members whom he introduced on that stage, while the members of the National Assembly are intact except, the senator’s representative and one other Member of the House of Representatives, both of whom are having very heavy return challenges in their constituencies.

The party has also resolved to commence legal action to activate the provision of section 68 of the constitution of the federal republic of Nigeria (1999 as amended) as it relates to the erring legislators.

Nigerians are watching keenly to see how the actions of the defectors will match their defection sermon. But did we hear Senator Akpabio well? When he mentioned Tropicana? We hereby demand that Senator Ben Bruce accept the challenge thrown by the former Senate Minority leader to either complete the Ibom Tropicana or give reasons why it cannot be completed, in addition to why it took so long.

We live in very interesting times and our political scene has become a huge theatre. We are watching the dramatis personae and will be glad to play back today, many years into the future.
