Two members of the House of Representatives, from Cross River State, Lego Idagbo and Michael Etaba, have defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC) from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Their defection was announced on Tuesday by the Speaker, Femi Gbajabiamila after reading letters from the two lawmakers.
It is the latest in the gale of defections that continues to rock the opposition PDP.
The Deputy Minority Leader of the House, Toby Okechukwu, protested the defection after the letters were read by Gbajabiamila.
It would be recalled that the Governor Ben Ayade of Cross River had recently defected to the ruling APC from the PDP.
