The lawmaker representing Delta North in the Senate, Senator Peter Nwaoboshi, has dumped the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Deputy Senate President, Ovie Omo-Agege, made this known on Friday when he presented Nawaoboshi to President Muhammadu Buhari and the APC National Caretaker Committee at the Presidential Villa.
Omo-Agege added that Nwaoboshi’s decision to join the APC clearly shows that the effort of the APC leadership was yielding fruit.
Reacting to the Senator’s defection, President Buhari welcomed Nwaoboshi to the APC, saying “you are welcome to the progressives family.’’
The APC Caretaker Committee led by its chairman and Governor of Yobe State, Mai Mala Buni, also warmly welcomed the lawmaker.
A statement signed on Wednesday by the Publicity Secretary of Delta PDP, Ifeanyi M. Osuoza, said Nwaoboshi was suspended for his recent romance with the APC for a period of one month.
He noted that the lawmaker was also suspended for his verbal recklessness and unprovoked utterances against the governor of the state, Ifeanyi Okowa.
Reacting to the news of his suspension, Nwaoboshi described the development as a laughing matter, adding that he has not received any official communication to that effect.
”I am just laughing. I have not gotten a letter from them. I do not know what they are talking about,” he told Vanguard in Abuja.
