Godswill Akpabio has resigned as the senate minority leader.

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) senator is believed to be preparing ground for his defection to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

He tendered his resignation as leader of the PDP senate caucus in a letter addressed to the PDP chairman, senate president, deputy senate president and other principal officers of the red chamber.

The letter read: “May I extend to you and my dear colleagues in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) senate caucus of the 8th senate of the Federal Republic of Nigeria the compliments and best wishes of my constituents and I.

“This letter is to formally inform you of my resignation as the senate minority leader with effect from August 4, 2018.

“Let me thank the senate minority leadership, our distinguished colleagues and our great party, the PDP for the opportunity to lead the caucus in the last three years.

“Please accept the assurances of my highest esteem.”

Ahead of his anticipated defection, the former Akwa Ibom governor met with President Muhammadu Buhari during the weekend in London, UK.

On Monday, Akpabio had a sit-down with Bola Tinubu, chieftain of the APC.

  1. Akpabio is a very big coward I've ever seen, he ran away in order for APC government to probe him, now all his sins has been forgiven. Some people are in the welcoming rally in honour of Akpabio because of the money they will get, not all the people there are APC members, their so called broom is not plenty while some people are there just to look, don't worry people are worming up for you people come 2019. Just on the 6th of this month I entered BRT here in Lagos I was shocked seeing all the people in that bus was just condemning APC and his Buhari government, look let me tell you people that crowd is a make up crowd, these APC are full of wayo sha, I just pray they should pack their bag and baggage's and leave Nigeria alone, the suffering is too much, left for me I did not see what APC is doing in favour of Nigeria
