Defection: Presidency, APC offered me N2bn, Dep Gov’s slot – Speaker


The Speaker of the Akwa Ibom State House of Assembly, Onofiok Luke, has alleged that the Presidency and the All Progressives Congress offered him N2 billion and Deputy Governorship slot for him to defect from the Peoples Democratic Party to the APC.

Luke made the allegation during a solidarity rally for the state Governor, Udom Emmanuel, and one of the senator from the state on the platform of the PDP, Bassey Albert, in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State capital.

But the Speaker said he would rather quit politics than defect to the APC.

Luke said the decision of the former Governor of the State and ex-Minority Senate Leader, Godswill Akpabio, to defect to the APC from the PDP was borne out of personal interest.
