BREAKING: Senator Nwaoboshi Dumps PDP, Joins APC
Sen. Peter Nwaoboshi from Delta State has dumped the people’s Democratic Party and joined the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
This is coming after the Delta State chapter of the PDP had suspended Senator Nwaoboshi for one month for criticizing Gov Ifeanyi Okowa.
The new APC Senator was received by President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa after he was led by Gov Buni and his Caretaker committee Leadership of the APC.
The Deputy Senate President, Ovie Omo-Agege, who was among other legislators and party leaders at the brief event said Senator Nwaoboshi’s decision to join the APC clearly shows that the effort of the CECPC was yielding fruit.
A statement signed by presidential Aide, Garba Shehu, said President Buhari warmly welcomed Senator Nwaoboshi and was deeply excited by his decision to join the APC.
Politics Hub Nigeria reports that with this defection, PDP currently has just one senator in Delta State.
