Majority: APC Now at Par With PDP in the House as Another Legislature Decamp to PDP
This loss of another APC legislator to PDP yesterday, brings the number of PDP and APC House members to 173 apiece, while the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) has five members, Labour Party (LP) – six, and Accord Party (AP) – three.
Hon. Haruna Joseph Kigbu jettisoned APC for the PDP, saying his decision to quit his former party, which has other legislators from his state and is the only state where the erstwhile Congress for Progressives Change (CPC) clinched the governorship election, was based on wide consultations.
The defection letter read at plenary by Tambuwal elicited excitement from some PDP members who chanted the party slogan as the announcement was made.
Kigbu’s defection was the second from APC in the last two weeks, as two other party members from Adamawa State, Hon. Titsi Ganama and Hon Haske Hananiya, had defected to the PDP.
PDP in turn had also lost one more of its members on the same day to APC, while the solitary member elected on the platform of Democratic Peoples Party (DPP) also crossed carpet to APC.
The current status of the House currently is as follows:
