Babatope said Akpabio moving to APC was a political suicide

Babatope said Akpabio

The former minister of transportation, Chief Ebenezer Babatope, has said that Senator Godswill Akpabio made a grave mistake by dumping the Peoples Democratic Party, PDPAccording to him, Akpabio’s defection to the All Progressives Congress, APC, was equivalent to committing political ‘suicide’. 

Babatope, a member of the PDP’s Board of Trustees (BOT), said Akpabio was only deceived by the APC. He said, “It is a pity. I like Akpabio as a person but politically, he has committed what I can call political hara-kiri. I am so sorry for him.

“He made a grand mistake for him to have judged that the APC will plan well for him. APC doesn’t mean well for anybody. They merely deceived people like him.” “So, Akpabio shouldn’t have joined the APC because there is nothing that he has done while in government that will make him to run to APC for cover”, he said.
