Buhari welcomes into APC senator Nwaoboshi accused of looting NDDC
A Nigerian senator who was accused by a government agency of using 11 companies as fronts to secure for himself a N3.6 billion contract has joined Nigeria’s ruling party,.

President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday welcomed the senator, Peter Nwaoboshi, to his party, saying “you are welcome to the progressives family.’’

Nwaoboshi, formerly of the Peoples Democratic Party, represents Delta North District in the Senate. He was presented to President Buhari and the National Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) at the State House by Deputy Senate President, Ovie Omo-Agege.

Mr Omo-Agege said Mr Nwaoboshi’s decision to join the APC clearly shows that the effort of the CECPC was yielding fruit.

The senator was warmly welcomed by party members, presidential spokesperson Garba Shehu said in a Friday statement.
