Nwaoboshi, Top PDP Senator, Defects To APC, Meets Buhari

Senator Peter Nwaoboshi has defected from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

President Muhammadu Buhari welcomed him to the ruling party at a reception in Aso Rock on Friday.

Nwaoboshi, representing Delta North District, Delta State, was presented to Buhari and National Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) by Deputy Senate President, Ovie Omo-Agege.

The Deputy Senate President said Senator Nwaoboshi’s decision to join the APC clearly shows that the effort of the CECPC was yielding fruit.

A presidential media aide, Garba Shehu in a statement Friday said the Senator was warmly welcomed by party members.

In attendance were Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, governors and members of the caretaker committee.

Buhari also received a report of the Caretaker Committee presented by Governor of Yobe State, Mai Mala Buni.

The Delta PDP had suspended Nwaoboshi for anti-part activities earlier in the week.
