Katsina federal lawmaker dumps APC for PDP
A Katsina Federal lawmaker, Ibrahim Murtala, has reportedly dumped the APC for PDP ahead of the 2019 general elections.
The Katsina federal lawmaker who represents Matazu/Musawa Federal Constituency, announced his defection from APC to PDP in a letter read by the Speaker, Mr Yakubu Dogara, on the floor of the House on Tuesday.
According to Murtala who said he will now pursue his political career under the umbrella of the PDP, he wished to inform the House and the general public that he was no longer a card-carrying member of the APC.
With this, the lawmaker now joins a growing list of members in the lower chamber of the National Assembly, who have dumped the ruling party in the past few weeks.
