The ranks of senators on the platform of the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) swelled by four on Wednesday as senators from the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) cross-carpeted to the ruling party.
The affected senators, three from Zamfara State and one from Delta are: Sahabi Alhaji Yau (Zamfara North), Hassan Mohammed Gusau (Zamfara Central), Lawali Hassan Anka (Zamfara West) and Peter Nwaoboshi (Delta North) on Wednesday defected from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Lawan read the letters from Senators Yau, Anka and Nwaoboshi indicating their defection at plenary.
He informed his colleagues that Senator Gusau, who resigned his membership of the PDP on Tuesday, has also joined the APC.
