Resign Honourably Or Be Forced Out Of Office – Akpabio Threatens Saraki


Former minority leader and Senator representing Akwa Ibom North West, Godswill Akpabio has advised the Senate President, Bukola Saraki to honorably resign rather than be forced out of office.

He made this known while addressing a press conference after Wednesday’s plenary in Abuja.

He said, it was a norm the world over that when a lawmaker resigns from his former political party, he relinquishes his office to allow the majority party form their leadership.

He said, Mr Saraki should borrow a leaf from him as a former minority leader, saying he honorably resigned the position when he defected from PDP to APC to pave way for PDP to elect their minority leader.

“It’s a tradition all over the world that when you defected to another party even as a Senate President like Saraki did, to resign from the office of the Senate President.

“APC is still the majority party and they need to form a new leadership. The Senate President should honorably resign just like I did,” Mr Akpabio insisted.

Speaking further on his experiences as a member of the APC, he said, he was fulfilled being a member of a ruling party, adding that he defected to the APC in national interest.

He further explained that his advice and suggestions must not be looked at with suspicion being a part of the ruling party now.

He came hard on his former party, PDP for doing nothing in the South-South in the last 16 years, adding that PDP government did not construct a kilometer of road for those years.

“Having moved from PDP to APC, I felt fulfilled. My advice and suggestions in the national interest would not be looked upon with suspicion by the government in power again.

“I moved to APC in national interest. I don’t believe in bringing government into being and will not support that government to succeed.

“In the last 16 years, I did not see 1 kilometer of road done by PDP government in Akwa National Ibom state, but today, APC government is constructing the road from Akwa Ibom to Calabar.

“The road has been a death trap and I must thank this government for that.

“From the national and local perspectives, people look at me as a leader and I must tell you that in 2019, it would be difficult for any other party to penetrate the South-South.“
