Senator Godswill Akpabio, on Thursday apologized to members of the opposition People’s Democratic Party, PDP, for leaving the party months before the 2019 General elections.
“I apologize to my colleagues in the PDP for the manner I left,” Akpabio said at the 8th Senate valedictory session in Abuja.
“I know they miss me.”
He added: “My stay in the 8th Senate is a mixture of sadness and happiness,” Akpabio said.
Akpabio’s defection to the APC was perceived as a massive boost for the party in the South-South during the General elections in February 2019.
APC, as at the time of Akpabio’s defection from the PDP, had lost about 15 Senators including Senate President, Bukola Saraki, to the opposition party.
