Members of the House of Representatives are currently collating a list of members that will possibly leave Nigeria’s ruling party, APC.
Razak Atunwa, Ali Madaki and Abdulsamad Dasuki, all elected under the platform of APC, are spearheading the move.
Sources among the defecting lawmakers told PREMIUM TIMES there are about 100 names on the list. This could not be independently confirmed.
The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, is expected to make the announcement of the defections before the end of plenary on Tuesday.
Fifteen senators earlier defected from the APC. The House plenary was ongoing at the time of this report.
