The two members, Ben Nwankwo and Anayo Nnebe, both from Anambra State made their decisions known in separate letters read on the floor of the House by the Speaker, Yakubu Dogara.

The two defectors claimed that there was division in the state chapter of their party

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has lost two of its members in the House of Representatives to the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA).

The two members, Ben Nwankwo and Anayo Nnebe, both from Anambra State made their decisions known in separate letters read on the floor of the House by the Speaker, Yakubu Dogara.

The duo claimed that there was division in the state chapter of the PDP, the party which sponsored their election to the House of Representatives.

 

PDP has been the major casualty of defection of members in this political dispensation as it has lost at least 15 of its members and gained only 1 from the ruling party, APC.

With this development, APGA now has three members in the House of Representatives, making it the third political party with representation in the National Assembly after APC and PDP.
