- Senator Godswill Akpabio has expressed optimism that the APC would win the coming general elections
- According to the former minority Senate leader, APC's victory would be so great that the governor of Akwa Ibom state would be disgraced by the defeat
- The former governor who defected to the APC in 2018, said since the day he left PDP, the party died instantaneously
A former minority Senate leader, Senator Godswill Akpabio, has said that the All Progressives Congress (APC) would have great victory in the next elections at both the federal level and in Akwa Ibom state.
The former Senate leader also said the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) died immediately he left the party, Vanguard reports.
Akpabio also said that the result of the forthcoming elections at the federal level, and especially in Akwa Ibom state would hit Governor Udom Emmanuel hard that he would not be able to do anything other than save himself from the shame that would follow after.
The senator also said the PDP is putting together thugs in preparation to rig the next elections, while saying, however, APC would not be scared by this as victory is already certain for the party.
He said: "I have never seen a child being greater than his father. I put all of them there and they cannot be greater than me. Or has any of you benefitted from inter-ministerial jobs? Please don’t think about PDP again because its dead. Since the day I left PDP, the party died. Who was PDP? I was PDP. So, since the day I left, the party died instantaneously. On the 8th of August 2018, that was the day PDP died.
"APC will win in Akwa Ibom flat and hands down. Nobody can rig us out in APC. They are busying recruiting thugs, I advise you to collect the money and eat but don’t do what they are telling you to do."
Also, the governorship candidate of APC in the state, Obong Nsima Ekere, was grateful for the support he has so far from the people of Akwa Ibom.
