Former Minority Leader in the Senate Godswill Akpabio

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Akwa Ibom State has accused Senator Godswill Akpabio of plotting media attacks against the leaders and chieftains of the party.

Spokesman for the party in the state, Ini Ememobong, said those at risk of being attacked included former vice president Atiku Abubakar, who is the PDP presidential candidate for next year’s elections.

Ememobong also warned Akpabio’s media handlers against publishing stories against Atiku, the state government and PDP chieftains.

He said: “We have read many stories bordering on Chief Godswill Akpabio and Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, recently.

“Most of these stories spin various conspiracy theories attempting to show the farsightedness or indispensability of the former governor.

“We must confess that all the stories will make an interesting read, at least to the pedestrian person, whose interest in the political affairs of Akwa Ibom is shallow.

“This reply seeks to address the media handlers of the former governor, calling on them to exercise caution.

“On the issue of being the live wire of the PDP, we will like to remind them that Akpabio is not a foundation member of the Peoples Democratic Party.”
