PDP Suffers Another Blow, As Lawmaker Defect APC In Plateau


Teryima Andrew, Jos








The People’s Democratic Party PDP has again lost yet another state legislator to the All progressive Congress APC.


The member representing Pengana constituency PDP, from Bassa local government on Tuesday during sitting, announced his defection to APC through a letter to the Speaker of the assembly, Peter Azi, member representing Jos north west.


The legislator said he left PDP due the protracted internal leadership crisis “Mr. Speaker, you will recall that I was elected and later inaugurated into this House on the platform of the PDP.


“But for over a year, the PDP has been plunged in serious crisis which brings about existence of two factions with parallel leadership at the national to the wards level.”


Following the departure of Mr Afon from PDP, APC legislators has 17 members, out of the 24 constituencies of the state assembly.


It will be recall that PDP had earlier this year lost a senator, a lawmaker from house of representative and several state legislators to APC.
