Reacting, Rep. Ndudi Elumelu, Minority Leader of the House mentioned that Hembe’s defection was unconstitutional.
Elumelu mentioned that there was no disaster in APGA to warrant the lawmaker’s defection, adding that his action was not in the most effective interest of democracy in Nigeria.
Based on him, leaving APGA for APC without crisis in APGA is a breach of the Structure.
Contributing, Rep. Solomon Bob (PDP-Rivers) mentioned that frequent defection of lawmakers from one political party to a different one was not healthy for Nigerian democracy.
He urged lawmakers to at all times abide by the principles guiding defections from one party to a different one, adding that the motion of members to other parties ought to be discouraged.
Speaking, the Deputy Speaker, Mr Ahmed Wase who presided over the plenary, disagreed with Elumelu, saying that APGA could be dealing with inner crisis which had been unknown to Nigerians.
“The fact that you are not aware of crisis in APGA does not mean there is no crisis in the party,” he stated.
