Rep who dumped APC finally joins PDP
The House of Representatives on Thursday went agog when a lawmaker, Jagaba Adams, (Kagarko/Kachia) who was a member of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) identified himself as a member of the opposition People’s Democratic Party, PDP, Mr. Jagaba, while contributing to a motion of urgent public importance on the need to add Kaduna and Plateau to a list of states under the siege of herdsmen, said “I am of the Peoples Democratic Party”, a statement which triggered jubilation in the PDP camp. Many members of the PDP were seen in jubilation as they congratulated the minority leader, Leo Ogor, who had been away for some time. The speaker, Yakubu Dogara, who presided over the plenary, however, said as far as the House Was concerned, Mr. Jagaba remained a member of the APC until he officially informs the House. The lawmaker had earlier in 2018 formally dumped Nigeria’s ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, and described it as a sinking ship, but did not communicate his decision to the house.
