36 House of Reps Members Dump PDP For APC!

Not so long after the defection of some of the Governors within the party’s fold, the crisis rocking the Peoples Democratic Party took a new turn on Wednesday as not less than 36 members of the House of Representatives dumped the party for the All Progressives Congress.

The political calculations on the floor of the House have been altered by the defection. Just as the defection was announced, Street Journal gathered that the leaders of the APC were in a meeting with former Vice President, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.

The Chairman of the House Committe on Publicity, Hon Zakari Mohammed from Kwara State and Dakuku Peterside fom Rivers were among those who defected. The Speaker of the House, Hon Aminu Tambuwal took time to shake hands with the Honourables who based their action on Section 68(1)(g) of the 1999 Constitution.
