There was confusion in the senate on Thursday as another Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) senator representing Akwa-Ibom South, Nelson Effiong announced his defection to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Senator Effiong told his colleagues that he defected from PDP to APC because of the internal wrangling in the opposition party.
His defection threw the plenary into a rowdy session before the President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki as well as the Chief Whip, Sola Adeyeye restored order to the senate.
However, the Deputy Minority Leader, Senator Emmanuel Bwacha dismissed the defector's position on internal wrangling in PDP, saying "PDP is one."
Senator Bwach vowed that the PDP would reclaim the senate seat which Effiong occupies.
