In the last 24 hours, there have been reports that the senate minority leader and former governor of Akwa Ibom state Godswill Akpabio is set to dump the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) for the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

According to Thisday, Akpabio is said to be formally received at the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium in Uyo later this week. The report also added that Akpabio met vice president Yemi Osinbajo last week as part of his move to the ruling party.

On Sunday, the presidency released photos of Akpabio in a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari in London. Buhari is currently on a 10-day vacation in London.
