Ex-defence minister, Obanikoro set to dump PDP for APC

By Olufunke Elushakin, Lagos

A former Minister of State for Defence, Senator Musliu Obanikoro is set to defect from the opposition People’s Democratic Party (PDP) to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) anytime from now.

Obanikoro dropped the hint on Tuesday while addressing the media on his impending move in Lagos, saying his movement is going to be a jamboree.

Obanikoro ran for the seat of Governor of Lagos under the umbrella of the PDP in 2007 but lost to current Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola.

He also lost the party primaries for the gubernatorial election in 2015 to Jimi Agbaje who lost to eventual winner Akinwunmi Ambode of the APC.
