Senator Joy Emordi, a member of the Peoples Democratic Party Board of Trustees, has defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Emordi joined the ruling party in Abuja on Wednesday.
She was received by Governor Mai Mala Buni, Chairman of the APC Caretaker Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee.
Former Senate President Ken Nnamani; Governor Atiku Bagudu of Kebbi State; and Governor Abubakar Badaru of Jigawa State.
Emordi dumped the PDP a day after seven National Officers of the party resigned their position.
Uche Secondus, national chairman of the PDP, is under intense pressure to step down over the wave of defection that has hit the opposition party.
