Drama As PDP Senators Prevent Colleague From Defecting To APC
Members of the Peoples Democratic Party caucus in the Senate on Wednesday, January 17, stopped Sonni Ogbuoji, senator representing Ebonyi south, from defecting to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Speaking on the floor of the senate, Ogbuoji cited problems in the PDP, both in his state and at the national level, as the reason why he wanted to leave the party.
But his colleagues in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) cut him short midway into his defection speech.
“I have decided to leave my former party – both in the state and national level,” the senator was saying when he was interrupted.
The PDP lawmakers immediately left their seats to consult with him.
After about 15 minutes of the chamber being rowdy, calm was restored when Ogbuoji announced that he would no longer defect to the APC.
“When I started my colleagues from my party said they needed me to consult with them. Because of the love they have shown me I have decided to step down my declaration,” the senator said.
On his part, Senate President Bukola Saraki said: “I will keep a whole day if he decides to come back.”
