Unfolding reports say Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe has dumped the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
It was also gathered that the Senator also resigned as the Minority Leader in the upper chamber of the National Assembly.
Abaribe who was an Abia governorship hopeful, had withdrew from the PDP governorship primaries on Tuesday.
He confirmed his defection on Friday in a letter to the ward chairman of the PDP in the Obingwa Local Government Area of Abia State and the President of the Senate in the National Assembly, Ahmed Lawan.
Abaribe gave ‘illegality, impunity, and hesitations in decision-making’ as reasons for dumping the PDP.
