Senate Minority Leader, Godswill Akpabio has said that 20 Senator-members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) are planning to join the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Akpabio said further that the APC senators would join the opposition party as soon as it resolves the current leadership crisis.

The former Akwa Ibom state governor made the comments on Thursday, January 26, during the PDP National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting in Abuja.

“There is no election that will be conducted in the former PDP 28 states that the party will not win. That is a matter of fact,” Akpabio said according to The Cable.

“As I speak, so many senators from the opposing party are eager to join PDP. All they want is return of peace to the party, once that is done I can assure that 20 senators are on their way to joining the PDP.

“Message to those who are thinking of defection is to retrace their steps because PDP is bouncing back to victory in 2019," he added.
