Two more members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the House of Representatives have announced their exit from the ruling party.
Recall that two members had earlier dumped the party on Wednesday.
At the plenary on Thursday, the Speaker, Yakubu Dogara, read letters from Ahmed Abu (Niger State) and Stephen Olemija (Ondo State) announcing their defections to the Social Democratic Party and the Action Alliance, respectively.
They both blamed the conduct and outcome of the APC primaries in their respective states for their defections.
Abu specifically said the primaries conducted by the APC in Niger “has left a bitter pill in my mouth.”
