Hon. Samuel Segun-Williams moved to the Labour Party (LP) while Hon. Adedapo Lam-Adesina defected to the African Democratic Congress (ADC).
APC hit by wave of defections
A week before Soba's resignation on October 24, Hon. Olatoye Temitope dumped the APC for the Action Democratic Party (ADP) during plenary on October 18.
This came three months after 37 lawmakers dumped the ruling party with 33 of them joining the PDP and four others joining ADC. Dogara also dumped the APC for the PDP during a legislative recess that took place between July and October.
