Akwa Ibom Speaker, Oniofiok Luke reveals Buhari offered him N2billion to dump PDP

Speaker of the Akwa Ibom State House of Assembly, Oniofiok Luke, has alleged that he was offered N2 billion and the deputy governorship slot by the Presidency to dump the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, for the All Progressives Congress, APC.

Luke who spoke during a solidarity rally in honour of the State Governor, Udom Emmanuel and Senator from the state, Bassey Albert in Uyo, the state capital said he would rather quit politics than defect to the APC.

According to Luke:
“They said the President had sent words for me to become the deputy governor. They offered me N2bn, but I said no. If you like, offer me N10bn, mine is no."
Mr. Luke also spoke on the defection of former Senate Minority Leader, Godswill Akpabio, saying the action was borne out of personal interest. He insisted that the defection was a means to grab and share power.
“They have no plan for us and no plans for the future of our state. It was all about them. It was only about power grabbing and power-sharing, but by God’s amazing grace, we will overcome them,” Luke said.
