Senator Uche Ekwunife, who represented Anambra Central Senatorial District, announced on Friday that she had defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Ekwunife, who was inaugurated as senator in June, 2015, had her election nullified by Appeal Court in Enugu on December 6 2015, on grounds of irregularities.
The court ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to conduct a fresh election in the zone within 90 days.
Announcing her exit from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to newsmen in Awka, the politician said, “It’s better now for me to join the APC.
“Let the heat be there; I am already on campaigns for my return to the senate, to complete my contract with the people of Anambra Central District,” she said.
