Nwobodo, a former presidential aspirant and senator on the platform of the PDP, announced his defection at a meeting reportedly convened by Dr. Geoffrey Onyeama, the foreign affairs minister in Enugu state.
In his speech, Nwobodo condemned his former party.
He said: “You must always lose, what matters is the ability to rise again.
“I must condemn our former party, PDP – I know we had problems.
“I told our former chairman, how come did we allow five governors to leave the party?
“I am not looking for a job, I am talking because I want peace.
“I want our people to be part of the Federal Government at the centre.”
A former PDP senator from Enugu state, Chief Fidelis Okoro, also defected to the APC at the meeting.
