Imo Senator Joins Peter Obi In Labour Party, Bauchi Colleague Dumps APC, Joins NNPP

Senators Francis Ezenwa Onyewuchi (Imo East) and Haliru Dauda Jika (Bauchi Central) have dumped their political parties.

Onyewuchi dumped the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) for Labour Party(LP) while Jika defected from the All Progressives Congress(APC) to the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP).

Their letters of defection were read at plenary by the floor by the Senate President.

According to the two senators, their decision was based on injustice and inequity being practiced in their former political parties.

They noted that the high level of injustice and inequity by the two major political parties in the country made them fail the primary elections in their respective states.

The decision of the two senators was announced on the Senate floor on Wednesday by the Senate President, Senator Ahmad Lawan during the plenary.

Ahead of the 2023 general elections, the ruling APC and the main opposition PDP have been witnessing exodus of their members to NNPP, Labour Party and few other political parties.

Recently, Senators Ahmad Babba Kaita representing Katsina North, Senator Lawal Yahaya Gumau representing Bauchi South, and Senator Francis Alimikhena representing Edo North, left the APC, while amongst others, the Senate Chief Whip, Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe representing Abia South Senatorial District recently dumped the party.
