Barely 24 hours after the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) lost four members of the House of Representatives to the ruling party All Progressives Congress (APC), another member, Jonathan Gaza has dumped the party.

Mr Gaza is the latest in the gale of defection that continues to rock the opposition party.

The letter of defection was read by the Speaker, Femi Gbajabiamila on Wednesday during plenary.

The Governor of Nasarawa State, Abdullahi Sule, and two of his predecessors, Sen Tanko Almakura and Sen Abdulahi Adamy were on the floor of the House to observe.

The Speaker, who was obviously delighted with the defection, could not hide his feeling as he mocked the minority caucus over the latest defection.

The party, in a release signed by its Director General of New Media, Collins Opuruzor, accused the Governor of saddling himself with worthless parties with expensive wines and champagnes while burning regional and national issues are being discussed by duly elected Governors of the Southern states.
