According to Akpabio, the leadership of the Senate must be restructured in a way that the majority can have their way while the minority will have their say.

Addressing journalists yesterday in Abuja, Akpabio said: “I did not just move like that. I was a Minority Leader in the Senate. I resigned my position in order to show that  I meant business. Let others who also have positions in the Senate who wish to also cross carpet from one political party to another also resign their positions and take a cue from what Godswill Akpabio did.’’
