PDP National Chairman, Uche Secondus has expressed shock at Senator Godswill Akpabio’s defection to APC.

He said he found it strange that Akpabio would move “against the tide” by moving to the APC which he described as “a sinking ship,” which every other person is ditching.

He said: “I cannot fathom any reason why on earth Sen. Akpabio should work against the tide, moving at opposite direction to a place reasonable persons are escaping from.

“How on earth can anybody who has his eyes wide open be seen walking into danger knowingly.”

Saying that Akpabio’s decision does not have the blessing of the people of Akwa Ibom, Secondus called on the people to be wise and not follow a leader directing them to danger.

“I urge you to remain focused and continue to give support to your hard working governor His Excellency Emmanuel Udom as he remains unrelenting in the delivering of democracy to the people.”, he said.
