For daring to defect to the All Progressive Congress, the Peoples Democratic Party, Abuja chapter, has urged the speaker, Hon Yakubu Dogara to declare Zephenia Bitrus Jisalo's seat vacant.

In a report by Daily Trust, the party stressed that since Hon Jisalo's mandate was given to him on the platform of PDP, he should vacate the seat after defecting to APC.

In a statement on Monday by the chapter's secretary, Bako Angulu, the PDP said there was no division or faction in its fold to warrant defection as claimed by the lawmaker, explaining that the Supreme Court had put to rest all contentious issues since July 12, 2017.
