Two members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Tuesday, announced their defection to the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA).
They are Hon. Ben Nwankwo, representing Orumba North/South federal constituency of Anambra State and Hon. Anayo Nnebe, representing Awka North/South federal constituency also from the state.
In their separate letters to the Speaker of the House, Hon. Yakubu Dogara, Nwankwo and Nnebe cited division in the state chapter of the party as the reason for their defection.
However, House Deputy Minority Leader, Hon. Chukwuka Onyema (PDP, Anambra), raised a point of order, insisting that there is currently no factionalisation within the party as claimed by the two lawmakers.
He said the PDP was not bitter over their defection, but warned that they should not create any sense of faction which do not exist.
“We don’t have any crisis of faction in PDP. We are not complaining but don’t create a sense of faction in the party,” Onyeama stated.
