Abuja - Another batch of chieftains of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) are set to defect to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Among the chieftains are 11 former ministers who served under the administration of ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, reports The Nation.
Also billed to join the ruling party are ex-Governor Jolly Nyame, Senator Andy Uba and some senators of the PDP.
The defection is all part of the ongoing realignment of forces even as some of the former ministers are said to be looking for soft landing because of ongoing investigations by the anti-graft agencies.
