Former Minister of State for Defence Musiliu Obanikoro is set to dump the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

Former media aide to the minister Jonathan Eze said Obanikoro will officially join the APC at an event on Lagos Island.

Chairman of Lagos APC, Henry Ajomale, could not be reached as he was said to be at a meeting, but his aide, who picked the call made to his phone, confirmed the report to Nigeria Tribune, saying, ”Obanikoro is defecting to APC.”

He, however, refused to answer any further question thrown to him.

Ajomale had earlier hinted that the APC was making efforts that would culminate in ensuring Obanikoro, a former Nigeria Ambassador to Ghana, was welcomed formally into its fold in a matter of weeks.

Obanikoro had long been rumoured to have joined the APC, as he had on some few occasions been found to have attended functions held by the party.

In particular, he had once attended a Town Hall meeting organised by Senator Oluremi Tinubu, wife of National Leader of APC, Bola Tinubu.
