The Delta State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has said that Senator Peter Nwaoboshi’s defection from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the All progressives Congress is a welcome development.
Recall that Sen. Nwaoboshi representing the Delta North Senatorial District at the National Assembly defected to the APC on Friday,
He was welcomed into the party by President Muhammadu Buhari at the State House.
Reacting, APC in a statement issued by its State Caretaker Committee Chairman, Prophet Jones Erue, on Saturday said that his committee and members of the State Working Committee (SWC) heartily welcome the distinguished Sen. Peter Nwaoboshi to the APC with open arms.
He described Nwaoboshi as a courageous, upright and dogged political tactician who “speaks truth to power” and stands firm in the defence of democracy in the face of intimidation by anti-democratic forces.
He said, “Sen. Nwaoboshi’s defection from the tyrannical PDP to the Progressives APC family is an attestation to the transformation initiatives of the current APC-led administration’s impacts on the socio-economic wellbeing of Nigerians,” NAN quoted him as saying.
Erue also assured Sen. Nwaoboshi of the unwavering support of the party leadership in furtherance of his political aspirations.
Nwaoboshi’s defection followed his suspension from the opposition PDP on Wednesday by the State Working Committee (SWC), Delta State Chapter, for a period of one month for alleged anti-party activities.
