Senate Deputy Minority Leader Defects To APC

President Muhammadu Buhari has welcomed Senate Deputy Minority Leader Emmanuel Bwacha who defected to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

He was presented to Buhari by Chairman of APC National Caretaker Committee Governor Mai Mala- Buni at the State House, Abuja.

Speaking to journalists after meeting with the President, Senator Bwacha said he decided to pitch his tent with the ruling party because he was sure he would get a level playing ground there.

Asked why he chose APC, Bwacha said: “I chose the APC because I know from the home front that is where there will be a level playing ground, number one.

“Then number two, the Ibi Bridge, which had been awarded and work is ongoing, was awarded under President Muhammadu Buhari, nobody from my senatorial district is not happy about this project because this has been our cry since the colonial days.

“Going forward, I am calling on all and sundry to join forces together so that we can build a better Taraba where governance will be seen as the hope of the people and where development of infrastructure will be a key priority.”
