A member of the House of Representatives from Benue State, Samuel Godday, has dumped the Labour Party (LP) to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The defection was contained in a letter read by Speaker Femi Gbajabiamila on Tuesday.
According to him, it was due to a fraction in the Labour Party that made him defect.
It should be noted that the ruling party continues to enjoy defection from all the minority parties in the House including the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
It will be recalled that last week, a member from Rivers State, Chisom Dike, defected from PDP to the APC.
