Akpabio speaks on plot to declare his seat vacant


Godswill Akpabio
Former Senate Minority Leader, Senator Godswill Akpabio, on Monday stated that he is not perturbed over an alleged plot to declare his seat vacant.

Akpabio also said that he was not aware that the Senate would reconvene on Tuesday.
The former Akwa Ibom Governor insisted that if the Senate President, Bukola Saraki declares his seat vacant, Saraki’s seat should also be declared vacant, especially when there is no division in the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Asked specifically if he is perturbed about reports that his seat might be declared vacant due to his defection to the APC, Akpabio told reporters in Abuja: “Even as you are looking at me, do I look perturbed? I have not heard the report. Because the reason why I think that is a rumour is that there is, at the moment, no division in the APC.
“The APC is one family. If you hear about R-APC that was not really a political party, that was not a division, it has since been consumed in what they call Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP).
“So, there is no division. And so, any defection from APC to PDP, we will like to declare those seats vacant.”
