Details have emerged of Godswil Akpabio’s meeting with the APC National Leader, Chief Bola Tinubu in his house at Bourdilon Road, Ikoyi, Lagos. One of Tinubu’s friends from the north said he was around when Akpabio came to offer to lead the impeachment plot against Saraki. The man said that Godswill Akpabio said he is ready to do anything Buhari and Tinubu want him to do. Akpabio said he has started talking to his senate colleagues in PDP to remove Saraki and install a Senate President Buhari will like to work with.
Akpabio told Tinubu to give him two weeks and he will see the trouble Saraki will start to face from the Senators of PDP. Akpabio said that he supported Saraki for Senate President because Buhari did not show interest for anybody at that time.
Akpabio said that he is ready to join APC immediately. He pleaded with Tinubu to talk to Buhari to stop the EFCC probe of him. He said that his hypertension is getting worse and his wife is in comma in a London hospital because of EFCC invitation to her about her school and hotel in Uyo.
Akpabio begged Tinubu to help him because his children are very young. He said that he has pleaded with EFCC to collect his loot like they are doing to others, but EFCC has refused. Akpabio ran to Tinubu after Rotimi Amaechi and APC leaders in Akwa Ibom State refused to listen to him because he is a green snake. He started disturbing them and pleading to join APC in March.
Akpabio pleaded with Tinubu to arrange a meeting with Akwa Ibom APC leaders for him to beg them first for forgiveness and to tell them that he is not joining APC to take control of party structure.
Meanwhile, one of the PDP senators in Akwa Ibom State told his supporters in Uyo that they will not follow Akpabio to APC and will not join him to impeach Saraki. The man said that Akpabio tricked them and ran away when PDP senators including them addressed the press to withdraw support for Buhari.
