Two [2] APC lawmakers resign membership of Party, deffect to PDP

Two lawmakers of the All Progressives Congress (APC), in Edo State House of Assembly have dumped the party for the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) on Monday.

CRIMECHANNELS gathered that the two lawmakers who cited internal crisis within the party as their reason for decamping are the former Deputy Speaker of the House, Yekini Idaiye (Akoko-Edo 1) and Nosayaba Okunbor (Orhionmwon East).

Speaker of the House, Rt. Hon. Marcus Onobun, during the house sitting on Monday read their letters of resignation from APC on the floor of the house.

Yekini Idaiye’s letter reads, “May I use this medium to inform you of my resignation as a member of APC.”


“I took this decision because of internal crisis in the party from my ward to the local government level which led to the factions in the party for some time now.”

“It is on this note that I have decided to resign my membership of the APC and officially defect to the PDP.”

Hon Nosayaba Okunbor ‘s letter reads, ” this is to formally inform you of my decision to resign my membership of APC.”

“This decision is sequel to the division within the party which has become intractable.”

“I have made strenuous efforts to ensure that this division within the party is reconciled in line with the provision of the party’s constitution, but to no avail as the leadership of the party has simply refused to allow the issues involved to be adjudicated upon.”

“Consequently, I have no other option than to resign my membership as a lean Liberty they say is better than fat slavery.”

Meanwhile, Onobun welcomed the lawmakers to the PDP and commended their desire to work with the state Governor in making Edo great again.
