The victory of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the March 28 presidential elections has led to an influx of new members into the party.

Most of the new APC supporters defected from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to join the new ruling party.

Some of the notable defectors include former Presidential adviser, Ahmed Gulak, Deputy Senate Leader, Jonathan Zwingina and former PDP legal adviser, Olusola Oke.

Ayiri Emami, a billionaire from Warri, Delta State, has also left the PDP for the APC and urged his followers to do the same.

A large number of defections were also witnessed on Wednesday, April 8, 2015 from Adamawa, Ondo and Oyo states.

Senate President, David Mark was earlier rumoured to be planning a similar move but he refuted the reports saying that the defectors are fair weather friends and that he would remain in the PDP even as the last man standing.
