Embattled Senator Dino Melaye representing Kogi West on the platform of the All Progressives Party (APC) has defected to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
He announced his defection on the floor of the Senate on Wednesday.
APC Senators, Ahmed Lawan, Olusola Adeyeye and Kabiru Marafa questioned Melaye’s method of defecting to PDP insisting that he should not be allowed to sit on the side of PDP senators.
Senate President Bukola Saraki however said that Melaye who appeared in neck dress only asked to be assigned a seat where he would be comfortable due to his ill health.
Melaye had told his colleagues that he was no longer comfortable sitting with APC senators.
More details soon
