Godswill Akpabio warns about declaring his seat vacant

Declaring seat vacant will prove abortive Akpabio said. Any move to declare my seat vacant will prove abortive as it would trigger a domino effect. Akpabio, who is a lawyer, made this known in an interview with newsmen in Abuja on Monday.


He said though he has not heard about it, (declaring seat vacant will prove abortive) if his seat must be declared vacant, the seats of those, who defected to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), should also be declared vacant. Senate President Bukola Saraki led a dozen senators of the APC to join the PDP in July.

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 there is no rancour in APC.


Any defection from APC to PDP, we will like to declare those seats vacant.

It has since been consumed in what they call Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP).

On the threat by APC National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole to get the President of the Senate, Dr Bukola Saraki impeached, Akpabio said he was not aware of that.

I just came in from Ikot-Ekpene, where I decided with my people to join APC. I’m yet to be briefed on any of those items. I have not heard anything.
