Dr Haruna Kigbu, a former lawmaker who represented Lafia/Obi Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives, on Saturday,  defected from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Kigbu defected with thousands of his supporters at an elaborated ceremony in Lafia.

Receiving the new members into the party, Mr John Mamman, Caretaker Chairman of APC in the state, described the development as “home coming” for the former lawmaker.

Mamman noted that Kigbu began his political career and won election under the platform of the  Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) which later gave birth to APC.
