Like in the Nigerian Senate, 32 members of the House of Representatives Tuesday, defected from the All Progressives Congress (APC) to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Four other lawmakers opted for the Africa Democratic Congress (ADC).
Their letters of defection were read by the Speaker Yakubu Dogara who was not among those who defected, even though his name was chanted by PDP members as he entered the house this morning.
Just after that, the Chairman, House Committee on Rules and Business, Orker-Jev Yisa also announced that he was resigning from the APC.
Details as they come in.
