Delta Labour Party senator defects to APC

by Dolapo Adelana

The Senator representing Delta Central senatorial district, Ovie Omo-Agege on Tuesday defected from the Labour Party (LP) to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

According to Omo-Agege, his defection is due to the crisis in the LP.

Speaking on the ‎floor of the senate he cited ‎section 68 (1) (g) as the basis of dumping the Labour Party for the APC.

“Being a person whose election to the house was sponsored by a political party, he becomes a member of another political party before the expiration of the period for which that house was elected; Provided that his membership of the latter political party is not as a result of a division in the political party of which he was previously a member or of a merger of two or more political parties or factions by one of which he was previously sponsored‎,” Section 68 (1) (g) ‎reads.

His defection has increased the number of APC ‎senator to 66 while the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has 42.
