Two Edo state house of assembly members have resigned their membership of the All Progressive Congress and defected to the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
One of those who defected is a former deputy speaker of the house and member representing Akoko-Edo 1, Yekini Idaiye and the Member representing Orhionmwon East Constituency, Nosayaba Okunbor.
The speaker, Marcus Onobun read their letters of resignation from APC on the floor of the house.
The resignation letter by Yekini Idaiye reads: “May I use this medium to inform you of my resignation as a member of APC.
I took this decision because of internal crisis in the party from my ward to the local government level which led to the factions in the party for some time now.
“It is on this note I have decided to resign my membership of the APC and officially defect to the PDP,” he said.
