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.
