MaryRose Onuigbo, Awka
The Senator representing Imo East Senatorial District, Ezenwa Francis Onyewuchi, has officially announced his defection to the Labour party.
In a letter addressed to the Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, Senator Onyewuchi said: “I wish to inform Mr. President and distinguished senators of my defection from the People’s Democratic Party to the Labour Party.
“This is after due consultation with my family, constituents and supporters.”
Senator Ezenwa’s defection means that the Labour Party now has a Senator in the Red Chamber.
Similarly, Senator Haliru Dauda Jika, representing Bauchi Central, announced his defection from the All Progressives Congress APC to the New Nigeria People’s Party, NNPP.
In his defection letter, the Senator cited a lack of internal democracy as one reason for his defection.
