Which Party Brought GSM? Which Party Set Up EFCC, ICPC? Akpabio Woos Senators

Senator Godswill Akpabio (Akwa Ibom North-West, PDP), has called on his colleagues in the All Progressives Congress (APC) to decamp.

The former Governor of Akwa Ibom State claimed some of them had been making inquiries if there was room for them in the PDP.

Speaking at the PDP’s national convention in Abuja on Saturday, he said, “APC senators, the doors are open for you. We are going to welcome you and you are welcome. Without a viable democracy, there is no way you can have good governance.

“We will continue to support policies that will take Nigeria out of recession but we cannot support ones that will take Nigeria into depression.

“When gold passes through the furnace, it comes out shining. Having seen the rough days for PDP, we shall now shine like gold.

“Our brothers who were misled into thinking they are changing party, the doors are open for you. Feel free to come back. You can come back and join us, you are always welcome.

“It is time to change the change. A change that is negative must go to make room for positive change.

“What a beautiful day this is, what a beautiful moment this is for democracy in Africa. The only thing that shows there is democracy is the legislature and that is why we (lawmakers) are here in our large numbers.

“PDP stands for democracy; for the chance for people to determine who leads them. I don’t need to talk about whether PDP is ready for government. I don’t need to talk about whether we have come back. Have we not come back? Who can you say we don’t have here?

“If we did not achieve anything, I want to tell you that we have achieved experience. We did a lot while in power and our achievements are there for all to see.

“Which party set up the GSM revolution? Which party hates corruption? Which party set up ICPC, EFCC?” he asked.

“Corruption is not a Nigerian invention but we must distinguish between fighting corruption and fighting political opponents,” he said.
