The Former Minister of State for Defence, Senator Musiliu Obanikoro, has officially defected to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

The politician confirmed this to Channels Television, noting that he would be declaring his defection in Lagos at the weekend.

While he is yet to clearly state reasons for his defection, reports say Mr Obanikoro has been seen recently at gatherings of APC chieftains.

Obanikoro was a minister under the Goodluck Jonathan administration and was in the running for the Lagos state governorship seat in 2015 but lost the ticket to Jimi Agbaje.
