- Mr Gaza cited division in the state chapter of the PDP as the reason for decamping.
Another member of the House of Representatives, Jonathan Gaza has defected from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressives Congress (APC) barely 24 hours after the PDP lost four members of the House of Representatives to the APC.
The letter of defection was read by the Speaker, Femi Gbajabiamila on Wednesday during plenary.
Governor Abdullahi Sule of Nasarawa state and two of his predecessors, Sen Tanko Almakura and Sen Abdulahi Adamy were present to witness the defection of Gaza who is the last PDP member from Nasarawa State in the House.
Mr Gaza cited division in the state chapter of the PDP as the reason for decamping.
The Speaker, who was obviously delighted with the defection, could not hide his feeling as he mocked the minority caucus over the latest defection.
“Where is Hon Ndudi Elumelu (the minority leader), is he not going to raise a point of order?” the Speaker asked.
