Another Blow For PDP As House Of Rep Member Defects To APC



A member of the House of Representatives from Zamfara State, Kabiru Amadu, has formally dumped the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Naija News reports that the lawmaker formally announced his defection to the All Progressives Congress (APC) on Wednesday.

Speaker of the House, Femi Gbajabiamila, read the letter of defection from Amadu at the plenary.

Amadu is the last of the six members from Zamfara who had earlier declared their defection at the state level along with Governor Bello Matawalle.

The lawmaker from Zamfara blamed the crisis in the PDP for their defection to the APC.

The legislators cited the crisis in the Zamafara State chapter of the PDP which led to the dissolution of the state chapter by the national leadership of the party as their reason for defecting to the APC.

Matawalle of Zamfara State had defected from the PDP to the APC alongside members of the federal and state legislatures.

All the 24 members of the state House of Assembly, all the three senators and six out of the seven members of the House had followed the governor to the ruling party.

However, the Deputy Governor, Aliyu Gusau; and a member of the House representing Anka/Talata-Mafara Federal Constituency, Kabiru Mafara, refused to leave the PDP.
