The All Progressives Congress (APC) on Wednesday, November 30, mocked the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) over the defection of its Senators to the ruling party.

All the three PDP Senators representing Ondo State at the National Assembly have dumped the party for the APC.

The latest to defect to the APC is Mr. Yele Omogunwa of Ondo South.

Omogunwa formally announced his defection in a letter on Wednesday, November 30.

This generated commotion at the Senate, with the Minority Leader of the Senate, Godswill Akpabio, asking that the Ondo South’s seat be declared vacant.

But the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, however, ruled Akpabio out of order.

In a twitter post on Wednesday, the APC begged other PDP senators to join the party.
