It is certain that the former Governor of Delta State, Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan, has left the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

His presence at a caucus meeting of the ruling APC held on Tuesday at the State House in Abuja was conspicuous.  

It was a closed-door meeting that was attended by President Muhammadu Buhari, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo and other members of the party.

However, in images shared after the meeting, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Mr Yakubu Dogara, was not seated at the exalted seat section where the National Chairman of the APC, Mr Adams Oshiomhole, President Buhari and the vice President were.

There have been rumours that the Speaker may have concluded plans to defect to the PDP.
