Former Governor of Cross River, Donald Duke has said that there will be no peace in the Senate, until it is no longer “a retirement home for Governors”.
Duke stated this via his verified Twitter handle on Wednesday night.
“The Senate won’t find peace until former governors stop making it a retirement home,” he wrote.
His comments come hours after former Akwa Ibom Governor, Senator Godswill Akpabio, defected from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Akpabio said that he decided to join a party that would sweep away poverty and impunity.
“The country is at war and all the hands must be on deck to salvage the situation and not to aggravate it.
“As keepers of national emergency, everyone should put heads together. I decided to join to emancipate the people and provide succour for the people,” he said.
