A former Senate President, Ken Nnamani, has joined Nigeria’s ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), saying he joined the ruling party owing to pressure from the people, especially his constituents.
Nnamani led the Senate from 2005 to 2007 as a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), a party he had been a member of since it was founded in 1998 until February 2016 when he abruptly severed ties with it.
“I do not believe I should continue to be a member of the PDP as it is defined today. This is certainly not the party I joined years ago to help change my country”, he said.
Recall that in October 2016, President Muhammadu Buhari named him the chairman of the electoral reform committee.
