By our reporter| Senator Peter Nwaoboshi has defected from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
According to a statement by presidential spokesman, Garba Shehu, Nwaboshi was welcomed to the ruling party by President Muhammadu Buhari 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.
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.
