APC Loses Three Senators To NNPP, PDP
Three members of the Senate on Tuesday announced their resignation from the ruling All Progressives Congress.
The lawmakers are Senators Ahmad Babba Kaita representing Katsina North, Senator Lawal Yahaya Gumau representing Bauchi South, and Senator Francis Alimikhena representing Edo North.
The Lawmaker’s decision to defect from the APC was contained in a separate letter, on Tuesday, during the plenary by the Senate President, Ahmad Lawan.
Senator Kaita and Senator Alimikhena defected to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), while their other colleague, Senator Gumau defected to the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP).
Alimikhena disclosed in his letter that his decision to resign from the ruling party was a result of a “continuing and multifaceted crisis that has bedeviled the APC”, especially in his Senatorial District.
