Drama as Another PDP House Member Defects to APC

- Udora Orizu in Abuja

A slight drama played out yesterday during plenary at the House of Representa­tives following the announceme­nt by the Speaker, Hon. Femi Gbajabiami­la, that Hon. Kabiru Ahmadu from Zamfara State has decided to defect from the the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressiv­es Congress (APC).

The lawmaker in his letter of defection hinged his decision to leave the party on crisis within the PDP in Zamfara State, amidst protest by the minority leadership of the House.

Reacting to the defection, the House Minority Leader, Hon. Ndudi Elumelu, said there was no crisis in Zamfara State PDP, vowing that the party will challenge the legality of the defection in court.
