Akpabio said the PDP lost the presidential election the day he joined the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC). Speaking on Channels Television's political programme, the former governor said he strongly believed the president needed to be re-elected.
“My former party lost from the day I stepped out of it.” “I believe strongly that the president needed to be re-elected,” Akpabio said.
According to Akpabio, it is disappointing that a state which so much of his followership was robbed off.
He called on the electoral body, to announced the original result for the polls which he claimed has him as the winner of the senatorial election.
Akpabio said: “Those responsible, whether the REC in Akwa-Ibom state or those he instructed know the reality, my plea now is that they should announce my result." “The reality is that I am asking for justice. I am saying that INEC should be bold enough to do the right thing.
“I am disappointed that a state with so much followership as far as the party is concerned, the state that loves President Buhari so much was not allowed as a result of a conspiracy to bring out the votes," the former governor added.
