2019: Big loss for PDP as 2 Reps members defect to APGA

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, a party which sponsored their election to the House of Representatives. 

Ben Nwankwo had earlier declared for APGA in Anambra state during the governorship campaign in 2017. Premium Times reports that the defection of Messrs Nwankwo and Nnebe is the first in favour of APGA since the inauguration of the 8th Assembly in 2015.
