The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has called on security agencies to summon former Senate Minority Leader, Godswill Akpabio for questioning over his Adolf Hitler comment on the 2019 elections.
The Publicity Secretary of the Akwa Ibom Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Ini Emembong, made the call in a statement in Uyo on Wednesday.
Akpabio had stated that the All Progressives Congress (APC) victory over the PDP in the state will be like the invasion of Poland by Adolf Hitler’s Germany.
Reacting, Emembong said the lawmaker’s threat to take over Akwa Ibom in a war-like manner should be taking seriously.
He said: “Security agencies should investigate a statement of such magnitude. They should invite the former governor for questioning and explanation of his comments.
“Also, if the state witnesses any violence between September 2018 and in the months preceding the elections, Akpabio should be held responsible.
“The PDP has ruled the state since 1999 and under Governor Udom Emmanuel, Akwa Ibom does not encourage and will not subscribe to violence under any guise.”
