Former Governor of Akwa-Ibom, Senator Godswill Akpabio, has officially dumped the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Akpabio officially defected to the ruling party on Wednesday, August 8 at the Ikot-Ekpene township stadium in Akwa Ibom.
Some of those present at the defection ceremony were the national chairman of the party, Adams Oshiomhole; Senate majority leader, Ahmed Lawan; national leader of the party, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu; and Nigeria’s minister of information and culture, Ahaji Lai Mohammed.
Akpabio had been associating with the ruling party in the past few days even though he didn’t make his defection official until now. He has also resigned his position as the Senate minority leader.
