Another PDP Senator, Nelson Effiong decamps to APC.

Nelson Effiong
A senator representing Akwa Ibom South, Nelson Effiong, has cross-carpeted from the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to the All Progressives Congress, APC.

The legislator declared his defecting to the ruling party on the floor of the red chambers at today's plenary.

Effiong, who refered to party crisis as his purpose behind defection, said,"Over one year now this party has broken down; on account of the crisis in the party, I have desided to leave the PDP and join the APC."

In his response, the senate Minority leader, Godswill Akpabio, grimaced at the choice, saying the lawmaker has automatically lost his senate seat because he became a senator under PDP's platform.

‎Akpabio cautioned that the party will fight Effiong's continued stay in the senate in court.

Recall that a senator from Ondo south, Omoyele Omogunwa, had in November 2016, surrendered from the PDP to the APC.
