Written by NobleAdmin on July 24, 2018
Members of the House of Representatives from the Peoples Democratic Party are right now in jubilation over the defection of some All Progressives Congress senators this morning.
The members, led by the Deputy Minority Leader, Mr Chukwuka Onyema, are singing anti-APC songs in the lobby of the National Assembly building.
The House has yet to commence plenary for the day.
The Speaker, Mr. Yakubu Dogara, has just arrived in the chambers amidst the shouts of “Dogara”; “Dogara”; “Dogara.”
PDP Reps are hopeful there will be defections in the House too, heightening the prospect of the party regaining majority leadership.
