The Deputy Minority leader in the Senate, Emmanuel Bwacha, has has defected from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
The lawmaker on Thursday immediately moved to the Aso Rock Villa to met with President Muhammadu Buhari.
Bwacha, who represents Taraba South in the Senate, was formally received by President Buhari into the ruling APC at the State House on Thursday, February 3.
Bwacha, in July 2018, mocked the APC, saying its leaders were secretly weeping over the mass defection of its members in the National Assembly.
Bwacha was elected to the Senate to represent Taraba South Senatorial District of Taraba State in the 2011 general elections on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). He was reelected under the same party in 2015 and won election again in 2019.
