Two members of the Ondo State House of Assembly, elected on the platform of Peoples Democratic Party, defected to the All Progressives Congress yesterday.
 
They are the Majority Leader, Olugbenga Araoyinbo, and Former-Acting Speaker, Malachi Coker.
 
The lawmakers said their defection would give their constituents more democratic dividends, promising to work with Governor Akeredolu, to develop the state.
 
PDP and APC now have 13 legislators each in the house.
