Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Senator, Nelson Effiong has defected to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

Effiong dumped the opposition party during the Senate plenary session on Thursday, January 19.

 

The defection comes days after APC Senator, Kabir Marafa prayed that the crisis in the PDP would continue so the APC could take all the opposition party’s senators.

“Senator Ahmed Makarfi and senator Ali Modu Sheriff have successfully to our delight, caused a division in the PDP. We are always praying that their power tussle will continue,” Marafa told Punch.

“While I pray for Makarfi to have the upper hand, I am also praying for Sheriff to have the power and ability to sustain the fight, so that we (APC) will be taking the senators one by one,” he added.
