PDP angry with Akpabio for secretly meeting Tinubu

01 July 2016, 14:24

Abuja -  The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is angry with the Minority Leader of the Senate, Godswill.

He incurred the wrath of the party over what his colleagues in the Senate described as Akpabio’s involvement in anti-party activities.

Akpabio was alleged to have a paid a secret visit to the national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu at his Bourdillon Lagos residence, reports NewsDay.

He was, however, sighted by some individuals who instantly alerted the Deputy Senate President, Senator Ike Ekweremadu, reports Signal.

Ekweremadu, by virtue of his position is currently the highest-ranking PDP member within the Nigerian government.

Worried by the report of Akpabio’s visit to Tinubu, Ekweremadu immediately confronted Akpabio.

The former Akwa Ibom governor was said to have replied Ekweremadu saying he visited Tinubu for some “personal issues”.

Akpabio's explanation did not go down well with Ekweremadu and the PDP caucus in the Senate who were concerned that their leader in the Senate who should be actively engaged with providing leadership and a voice for the PDP opposition is busy hobnobbing, not just with the ruling party but one of its most influential chieftains who played a key role in providing the funding that kicked out the party from power.
