APC defectors chant Speaker Dogara’s name, as PDP welcomes them

A total of 37 House of Representatives members dumped the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) during plenary on Tuesday.
Thirty-three of them defected to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) while four members from Oyo State joined the Africa Democratic Congress (ADC).
The APC defectors are mainly from Benue, Sokoto, Kwara and Kano, among others.
There was jubilation by the PDP lawmakers following their defection. Earlier on Tuesday, 15 APC senators defected to PDP.
