Three Senator from the ruling party All Progressives Congress(APC) decamp their membership from APC to PDP and NNPP.

The lawmakers are Senators Ahmad Babba Kaita representing Katsina North, Lawal Yahaya Gumau representing Bauch South and Francis Alimikhena representing Edo North.

Babba Kaita and Alimikhena defected to the opposition Peoples Democratic Party PDP, while Gumau, on the other hand, defected to the New Nigeria Peoples Party NNPP.

The senator’s decision to resign from APC, was contained in a separate letter, during the plenary by the Senate President, Ahmaf Lawan on Tuesday.

Babba Kaita’s letter read, “As Senator representing Katsina North Senatorial District, I write to formally notify you of my resignation from the All Progressives Congress (APC), and registration declaration for the Peoples Democratic Party.

“My resignation from the APC was born out of the marginalisation of critical stakeholders by the State Government and leadership of the party in Katsina State, where small people like me do not have a chance. I have since been joyful and graciously accepted into the fold of the Peoples Democratic Party in Katsina State.”

Alimikhena “disclosed in his letter that his decision to resign from the ruling party was as a result of “continuing and multifaceted crisis that has bedeviled the APC”, especially in his Senatorial District.”
