The lawmaker representing Oyo Central Senatorial District, Hadjia Monsurat Sunmonu, this morning joined 14 other senators to decamp from the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC.
Though the letter read that the 15 lawmakers have joined the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP but Sunmonu, who was the speaker of the Oyo State House Of Assembly, may have joined the newly formed African Democratic Congress, ADC.
The senators in a joint letter to the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, made their intention known.
The letter reads:
Dear Senate President,
After due consultation, with our constituents and stakeholders in our constituency, in proper recognition section 16 (1G) of the 1999 constitution, and for the fact of our party, The All Progressives Congress, we hereby inform the Senate that we the undersigned;
We hereby inform that we are changing our political affiliation from APC TO PDP. We thank you for your exemplary leadership.
In a follow up announcement, Mr Saraki said, Senator Abdulazaz Nyako, has also announced his defection.
