You're a political tourist, PDP Senator tells colleague who defected to APC
You're a political tourist, PDP Senator tells colleague who defected to APC

John Enoh, a Senator from Cross River on Tuesday at the Senate plenary, announced his defection from the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP,  to the All Progressives Congress, APC.

He relied on Order 43 of the Senate’s Standing Rules, and said that his defection was with the support of his constituents.

Enoh is the Chairman, Senate’s Committee on Finance.

He said “on Saturday, May 6, I formally resigned from the PDP and registered formally as a member of the APC.’’

Reacting to the defection, the Deputy Minority Leader, Emmanuel Bwacha, described the defection as a political tourism.

The lawmaker, who came under Order 43, said recent cases of PDP lawmaker’s defection would not last.

According to him, they will move to our side when the baton changes.

President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki, welcomed Enoh to the APC, and said “under our rules, there cannot be any debate or comment.

“I wish him a fruitful contribution through the medium he has now chosen.’’

With this development, APC now has 67 Senators in the upper chamber while PDP has 41 Senators.

Anambra Central Senatorial District seat has remained vacant as the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) is yet to conduct bye-election to get a replacement for Senator Uche Ekwunife.

Ekwunife’s election in 2015 was annulled by an elections tribunal.
