Former Minister for State for Defence, Musiliu Obanikoro, on Tuesday, formally announced his defection to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
The announcement is to put to rest speculations that has been raging since last year over where the astute politician would pitch his tent.
Recall that there has been wide speculation that his meeting with the National Leader of APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, was to soften his arrival into the party.
Although his defection has been denied many times but wasn’t ruled out.
Obanikoro had said that he can never work with (Ali Modu) Sheriff, a factional Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party.
Obanikoro, a former senator, was the subject of an Economic and Financial Crimes investigation of a N4.8 billion allegedly received from the office of the immediate past National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki, an allegation Mr. Obanikoro denies.
In October, he was remanded in EFCC custody after he turned himself in to the anti-graft agency.
On November 3, he returned about N100 million to the EFCC and was released a day later.
