The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) on Tuesday lost four House of Representatives members to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Bello Shinkafi, Ahmed Bakura, Ahmed Bungudu and Suleiman Gummi from Zamfara State announced their defection to APC in a letter which was read at plenary.
The lawmakers said they left for APC due to the crisis in Zamfara PDP.
“We the underlisted members wish to officially notify you of our defection from the PDP to the APC following the crisis of the PDP in Zamfara which has consequently led to the dissolution of the state executive by the national body,” they said in their letter.
This action comes barely a week after Governor Matawalle defected to APC.
Two PDP lawmakers, Idagbo Ochiglegoor and Michael Etaba, both from Cross River defected to APC last week Tuesday.
One day later, a PDP lawmaker from Zamfara, Umar Dangaladima, also moved to APC.
