The Wife of a former National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Sen. Ahmadu Ali, Dr. Maryam Ali, has joined the All Progressives Congress.
Mrs. Ali said her decision to join the APC was borne out of the desire to continue to render service to her people.
Dr. Maryam Ali renounced her membership of the PDP and declared her allegiance to the APC at a brief ceremony at the APC National Secretariat, in Abuja, on Thursday.
Recall that a former Minister of State for Defence and former Ambassador of Nigeria in Ghana, Obanikoro had earlier disclosed his intention to officially defect to the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC.
The report could not provide the reason for his planned defection, but the former minister has been seen lately at gatherings of APC chieftains.
He was minister in the last administration of Goodluck Jonathan and was in the race for the Lagos state governorship seat in 2015 but lost the ticket to Jimi Agbaje. DAILY POST
