President Muhammadu Bu­hari on Monday night host­ed to a dinner for Senator-elect, Chief Ifeanyi Ubah, other Senators-elect and returning Sen­ators of the All Progressives Con­gress (APC) at the Aso Rock Villa.

The dinner comes ahead of the inauguration of the ninth Na­tional Assembly in June, and is be­lieved to be part of efforts to ensure smoother relationship with the in­coming National Assembly.

Also in attendance were the national chairman of the APC, Ad­ams Oshiomhole, and APC Gover­nors Akinwunmi Ambode of La­gos State, Nasir el-Rufai of Kaduna state; Yahaya Bello of Kogi State; Si­mon Lalong of Plateau state; Ati­ku Bagudu of Kebbi state and Ab­dulaziz Yari of Zamfara state.

Others were Badaru Abuba­kar of Jigawa, Ibrahim Geidam of Yobe State; Kashim Shettima of Borno State; and Gboyega Oyeta­la of Osun State; as well as the Sec­retary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha; for­mer Governors of Abia State, Orji Uzor-Kalu; Abdulahi Adamu from Nasarawa State and APC Nation­al Working Committee members.

In his remarks before jour­nalists were excused from the event, Oshiomhole announced that Ubah, who won the Anam­bra South senatorial seat in the re­cent national assembly polls on the platform of the Young Progressives Party (YPP), has defected to the APC but that the necessary for­malities will be finalised later.

Oshiomhole stressed that Ubah was more comfortable with APC, being the winner and that he was very much welcome while issues pertaining to the defection will be perfected later.

Ubah was the only non-APC Senators-elect at the dinner, which held at the Banquet Hall of the Aso Rock Villa.

The APC chairman added that APC stood a good chance of being in firm control of the ninth Sen­ate with 223 APC Senators gotten out of 360.
