The All Progressives Congress (APC) has continued to take pleasure in defections from minority events within the Home of Representatives.
On Tuesday, Peter Makinde, a member of the Africa Democratic Congress who represents Ondo East/Ondo West federal constituency of Ondo State moved to the APC.
The defection brought about an offended response from the Peoples Democratic Social gathering’s (PDP) caucus within the Home.
Nicholas Ossai a member from Delta State raised a degree of order, calling on the Speaker to declare the defection ‘void.’
Citing part 68 sub 2 of the 1999 structure, Ossai argued that Makinde didn’t offered needed proof to help his declare of faction within the ADC.
“He’s to supply proof to your entire Home, to not the presiding officer. None of us has acquired the copy of the proof. Since this Home has not acquired a replica of the proof, I urge the Speaker to void his defection,” Ossai argued.
The submission from Ossai earned him a rebuke from the Speaker, Femi Gbajabiamila who known as Ossai a ‘meddlesome interloper’
“I’m positive that proof might be documentary or verbal. Within the final 20 years, now we have relied on verbal proof, even when individuals are defecting to the PDP.
“Are you aware the occasion Chairman of ADC? Are you able to inform us the identify of the Chairman?”
As Ossai couldn’t present a solution to the query, Gbajabiamila dominated him out of order.
