To sack me, seats of all defectors in the Senate must also be declared vacant —Akpabio

Senator Godswill Akpabio (APC-Akwa Ibom) says any move to declare his seat vacant in the Senate will prove abortive. He said though he had yet to hear about it, if his seat must be declared vacant, the seats of those who defected to the Peoples Democratic Party should also be declared vacant. Akpabio made this known in an interview with newsmen in Abuja on Monday.

According to him, if the excuse of those calling for his seat to be declared vacant is that there is no rancour in PDP to warrant his defection, they should also know that there is no rancour in APC. He said, “Any defection from APC to PDP, we will like to declare those seats vacant. As you are looking at me, do I look perturbed? I have not heard the report. I think that is a rumour because at the moment, there is 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)."
