He said, it was a norm the world over that when a lawmaker resigns from his former political party, he relinquishes his office to allow the majority party form their leadership.
Akpabio said, Mr Saraki should borrow a leaf from him as a former minority leader, saying he honourably resigned the position when he defected from PDP to APC to pave way for PDP to elect their minority leader.
“It’s a tradition all over the world that when you defected to another party even as a Senate President like Saraki did, to resign from the office of the Senate President.
“APC is still the majority party and they need to form a new leadership. The Senate President should honourably resign just like I did,” Akpabio insisted.
