Two federal lawmakers dump APC, decamp to PDP


Two members of the House of Representatives elected on the platform of the All Progressives Congress, APC, have resigned their membership of the ruling party.

One of them also announced his defection to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

The lawmakers, Babatunde Kolawale representing Akoko North/West Federal Constituency in Ondo and Mukaila Kazzim representing Abeokuta North/Obafemi-Owode/Odeda Federal Constituency of Ogun State announced their resignations in two separate letters to the green chambers on Wednesday.

Their letters were read on the floor of the house by the Speaker, Yakubu Dogara.

While Kolawale, in his letter, announced that he was defecting to the PDP, Kazzim, did not state the party he would join.

The lawmakers said they were decamping from the APC due to some irreconcilable issues relating to the party primaries.

Kazzim said, “god-fatherism” played a vital role in the emergence of candidates to represent the party in the 2019 general elections.
