Dele Momodu, the publisher of the Ovation Magazine and former presidential aspirant, has said that Godswill Akpabio, the former governor of Akwa Ibom State, would become a ‘saint’ after joining the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Momodu, while reacting to Akpabio’s visit to President Muhammadu Buhari on Sunday said the Senator’s rumoured defection showed that ‘a devil’ changes to a saint when he dumps the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the APC.
In a tweet he shared on Sunday, Momodu said, “I sincerely congratulated Akpabio for proving to the world what we have always known, that a devil transfigures to the saint from PDP to APC and the opposite when he moves from APC to PDP.”
Akpabio, who won his seat in the Senate on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), is believed to be set to decamp to the APC.
The lawmaker’s meeting with Buhari comes after the Special Assistant on Prosecution to the President, Okoi Obono-Obla’s post on Facebook on Saturday night.
Obono-Obla stated that Akpabio will be received into the APC on Thursday by the Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo and other top leaders of the party at a rally in Ikot Ekpene, Akwa Ibom State.
Similarly, Reno Omokri, media aide to the former president Goodluck Jonathan tweeted Sunday that “Behold Akpabio, all your sins have been forgiven. When @officialEFCC sees the broom, EFCC will Passover!”, in reaction to the news of Akpabio’s intention to defect to the APC and visit Buhari who is presently on ten days vacation in the UK.
