According to him, it was the response of the Acting President to the security siege at the National Assembly that made the opposition party allow Akpabio to go.
He, however, said that the PDP wants Akpabio to learn from the past.
He also said the PDP was happy “donating ” the former Senate Minority Leader, to the APC.
Walid said it was within his right to decamp to another party, adding that there were competent hands in the party to take over from him.
“The recent attempt to tamper with the legitimate function of the National Assembly by selfish individuals who attempted to block the Assembly should be condemned and appropriate action taken against the intruders,” Walid told reporters in Abuja yesterday.
“In this respect, the Acting President Osinbajo should be praised for taking a decision to do away with the DSS boss, promising that the situation will be further investigated.
“The purported resignation of our minority Leader, Godwill Akpabio is also an act of democracy.
“On behalf of the BOT we wish Akpabio bye-bye and safe journey, advising him to learn from history especially from those that left us and are now returning in droves,” he said.
