Another PDP House of Rep member defects to APC

The Peoples Democratic Party has lost yet another House of Representatives member to the All Progressives Congress.

He is Mr. Johnson Agbonayinma from Edo State.

Agbonayinma, was a member of the Ali Modu Sheriff faction before the Supreme Court recognised the then Senator Ahmed Makarfi faction as the authentic leadership of the party.

His defection comes two days after a member of the PDP from Imo State, Mr. Raphael Igbokwe, had defected to the APC, causing a walk out by PDP lawmakers who insisted that the lawmaker had no reason to leave his party since there was no crisis.

Agbonayinma however claimed, “The PDP has shut the door against me.”

Edo State Deputy Governor, Mr. Phillip Shuaibu, witnessed the defection.
