Senator Godswill Akpabio has said that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) lost the election the day he left and joined the All Progressives Congress (APC). 

“My former party lost from the day I stepped out of it” Akpabio stated in an interview with Channels Television.

Akpabio said the PDP became lighter when the minority leader of the Senate moved to the ruling party.

He said when he moved, he moved with thousands, hence depleting the PDP’s numbers and by extension its chances of winning the elections.

The former governor of Akwa Ibom however, noted that the PDP would not have been able to defeat President Buhari even if he was there because Nigerians wanted continuity.

“I believe strongly that the President needed to be re-elected,” Akpabio said.

Speaking about his loss at the Senatorial polls following his defection to the APC, Akpabio said he was robbed.

He said the results from Ikot-Ekpene Senatorial District were mutilated in a bid to deprive him of his mandate.

The lawmaker, however, pleaded that his mandate is restored, and he is granted justice.
