Supporters of Godswill Obot Akpabio, Senator representing Akwa Ibom North West District at the Nigerian Senate, on Wednesday, August 8, displayed a mock coffin which had the colours of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Nigeria’s main opposition party.
Akpabio’s supporters displayed the mock coffin during a mega rally to welcome the Akwa Ibom North West lawmaker into the All Progressives Congress (APC), Nigeria’s ruling party.
Nigeria’s integrated online media platform, ALEDEH recalls that Senator Akpabio dumped the PDP for the APC on Wednesday.
The Akwa Ibom North West lawmaker was welcomed to the ruling party at a rally organised for him by the Akwa Ibom State chapter of the APC.
Among Senators in attendance to welcome the Akwa Ibom North West lawmaker were: Abdullahi Yahaya, Abdullahi Gumel from Jigawa State, Muhammed Sani from Niger State, Gbenga Ashafa from Lagos State and Former Nasarawa Governor, Abdullahi Adamu.
Others were: Senators Abubakar Kyari from Borno State, Babajide Omoworare from Osun State, Magnus Abe from Rivers, Mao Ohabunwa from Edo and Nelson Efiong from Akwa Ibom.
Apparently excited with the move, his supporters displayed a mock coffin which had the colours of the PDP.
Inside the coffin was an object which laid like a corpse.
