The embattled Senator Dino Melaye, representing Kogi West under the ruling All Progressive Congress APC has dumped the party and defected to the new Peoples Democratic Party nPDP.
The Senator made the announcement on the floor of the Senate today Wednesday.
Some Senators disagreed with the way and manner he defected to the PDP and insisted that he must not be allowed to sit on the side of the PDP in the Senate. These include Kabiru Marafa, Olusola Adeyeye and Ahmad Lawal.
Melaye was said to have earlier told his colleagues that he was no longer comfortable sitting with APC Senators.
However the Senate President, Bukola Saraki stated that S
enator Melaye only asked to be allowed to sit in a comfortable location due to his ill health.
