Forty-eight hours after his suspension by the Delta State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), the Senator representing Delta North, Peter Nwaoboshi, on Friday joined the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Abuja.
Presidential spokesman, Garba Shehu, said Nwaoboshi’s defection showed that the effort of the APC CECPC was yielding fruit.
He was introduced to Buhari and the CECPC by Deputy Senate President Ovie Omo-Agege.
In suspending Nwaoboshi on Wednesday, Delta State PDP spokesman Ifeanyi Osuoza said the action was necessitated by the “recent romance with an opposition party, verbal recklessness and unprovoked utterances of the lawmaker, particularly against the person of the state governor, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa.”
Nwaoboshi had dismissed his suspension as satirical, hurriedly done, and a laughable caricature.
He said: “Curiously, this irrational, laughable, illegal and unconstitutional action of this bunch of alarmingly anti-democratic forces masquerading as the State Working Committee is against the principles of fair hearing as enshrined in the Nigerian constitution; a document that supersedes all other documents.”
