A member of the House of Representatives from Plateau State, Edward Pwajok, has defected from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
His defection followed a letter read by the Speaker on the floor of the House on Wednesday.
He said the division in the PDP prompted him to defect to the ruling.
The minority leader, however protested stating that there was no division in the PDP and Ali Sheriff is the National Chairman of the PDP.
Pwajok’s constituents had reportedly asked him to dump the PDP for the APC.
The executive governor of Mr. Pwajok’s home state, Plateau, Simon Lalong, was at the plenary to welcome him to the APC.
