Drama in House as APC Reps Member Defects to Labour Party

Former Leader of the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) caucus in the House of Reps, Opeyemi Bamidele, on Thursday formally informed the House that he is no longer a member of ACN which is now APC....
He has joined the Labour Party. He told members that his reason for leaving APC dated back to the start of merger talks among the defunct ACN with CPC and ANPP. Bamidele added that he opposed the merger from the beginning and did not wish that “my party, the ACN,” should be part of the merger.

As he decamped, Labout Party and PDP Reps members were seen congratulating Bamidele on his decision.

But in his reaction, Minority Leader in the House of Reps, Hon Femi Gbajabiamila, said...
“Let me state that Bamidele was not in the initial numerical configuration that gave birth to the majority status of the APC about two months ago. From the record of the APC House Caucus, his name had been deleted long before his official communication of defection today. 
"I wish to reaffirm that the majority status of the APC status remains intact.”
