People Democratic Party (PDP) members in the House of Representatives have staged a walk-out of the plenary to protest the defection of a PDP reps to All Progressives Congress (APC).
The PDP rep from Imo State, Raphael Igbokwe, defected amidst uproar from members of his former party.
The PDP reps walked out of the chamber after the Speaker, Yakubu Dogara, allowed the defection after arguments they put up.
They argued that there is no division in PDP to justify such a defection, considering the recent ruling of the Supreme Court on the PDP leadership crisis.
But the defecting rep claims he defected to APC since last January when PDP was still sharply divided into factions.Please subscribe to our newsletter
