If I Go, Saraki Must Go – Akpabio
Senator Godswill Akpabio has said that he is not perturbed by the calls by some senators that his seat should be declared vacant at the Senate.
He said that he had not committed any offence, defecting from the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP to the All Progressives Congress, APC.
Akapbio who officially announced his defection to APC at a mega rally in Ikot-Ekpene Akwa Ibom State last week Wednesday called on those who wanted him out of his seat to first declare the seat of the Senate President Bukola Saraki vacant.
Akpabio resigned as the Senate Majority Leader before defecting to the APC last week, which makes the position vacant at present but not his seat as senator from Akwa Ibom State.
The former Governor of Akwa Ibom State said that he had consulted his people and constituency before taking the decision to defect and that nobody could remove him from the Senate except those who voted him.
Asked, if he learnt about the plan of some members of APC to remove Saraki, the former Majority Leader said he knew nothing about such.
He told journalists to wait until the Senate reconvenes on September 22 to hear more from him.
