A member of the House of Representatives, Jonathan Gaza, has defected from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Gaza was the last PDP member from Nasarawa State in the House of Reps before he decamped on Wednesday.
Nasarawa State Governor, Abdulahi Sule, was present to witness his defection.
The governor was at the green chamber, alongside two former governors of the state, Tanko Al-Makura and Abdulahi Adamu, who are both serving senators.
In a letter read by the Speaker, Rt. Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila, Gaza cited division in the state chapter of the PDP as the reason for defection.
Gaza is the fifth member this week to move from the PDP to the APC this week. On Tuesday, four members from Zamfara State announced their defections to the ruling APC.
There was no protest from the minority bench, as both the Minority Leader, Ndudi Elumelu and his deputy, Toby Okechukwu, were not available to raise any objection.
