LAGOS (Reuters) - The president of the Nigerian Senate Bukola Saraki is rejoining the opposition People’s Democratic Party, it said on Tuesday.

The opposition party said on its official Twitter feed that Saraki “has also dumped the failed and dysfunctional @OfficialAPCNg and has returned to the PDP”.

The tweet came minutes after Saraki, also on Twitter, said he was leaving President Muhammadu Buhari’s ruling party.
