“Let the world know I’ve joined APC, I’m now a progressive,” Akpabio said on Wednesday.
“What I have done today is to link the people of Akwa Ibom to the centre. Akpabio is now in APC,”
Akpabio, who resigned his position as the Senate minority leader Tuesday, was accorded a heroic reception by a crowd of supporters and admirers at the mega rally held at the Ikot Ekpene township stadium to officially receive him to APC.
 

Meanwhile the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Wednesday froze the bank accounts of Akwa Ibom State.

The governor of Akwa Ibom, Udom Emmanuel, and the state’s accountant-general were reportedly shocked by the development.
It came a day after Governor Samuel Ortom raised an alarm that the EFCC has frozen the state’s bank accounts, trapping workers and pensioners’ salaries in a state beset by hardship following months of deadly attacks by suspected herdsmen.
