A total of 37 (thirty-seven) members of the House of Representatives have declared their official defection from the All Progressives Congress (APC) to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
That is coming barely 14 hours after 15 APC senators decamped to the PDP.
Inside the defection letter read by Yakubu Dogara, Speaker of the House, the lawmakers cited fictionalization and division within the party as their cause for leaving.
The details include 33 lawmakers from Kano, Sokoto, Kwara, Kogi and other states, who defected from the APC to the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The 4 others are from Oyo State who defected from the APC to African Democratic Congress (ADC).
The defection was introduced a while ago by the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara.
The announcement, nonetheless, threw the plenary into commotion with shouts of PDP, APC, Change, Sai Baba, and so on, renting the air.
All attempts by the Speaker to revive normalcy to the House has thus far proved abortive as members of each events have interaction in shouting bouts.
Dogara described the entire commotion as the “fantastic thing about democracy.”
