Senator Godswill Akpabio, the former Senate minority Leader, has on Wednesday pledged to take the people of Akwa Ibom state and the South-South to the centre for meaningful visibility.
The former governor of Akwa Ibom, who is 55-year-old, defected from the opposition Peoples Democratic Party [PDP] to All Progressives Congress [APC] at a mega rally held at the Ikot Ekpene township stadium.
Akpabio told the huge crowd that he decided to join APC because he discovered that President Muhammadu Buhari “is a man of integrity and a nationalist”.
He had also disclosed that he decided to join a party that would sweep away poverty and impunity.
I joined APC to help salvage the country.
“The country is at war and all the hands must be on deck to salvage the situation and not to aggravate it.
“As keepers of national emergency, everyone should put heads together. I decided to join to emancipate the people and provide succour for the people ,” NAN quoted him as saying.
Akpabio also revealed that the PDP of today had no vision and the leadership was replete with arrogance.
