Four members of the House of Representatives elected on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) from Zamfara State, on Tuesday, defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The defectors cited the crisis within the PDP as reason for their action.
The defectors are Bello Hassan Shinkafi, Ahmed Bakura, Ahmed Shehu and Suleiman Gumi.
In a letter signed by Hon. Suleiman Gumi and read at the Plenary on Tuesday, the lawmakers said they were leaving the PDP because of the crisis within it, which led to dissolution of the state chapter by the National leadership of the party.
Recall that six PDP lawmakers from the state had agreed to move with Governor Bello Matawalle to the APC.
