The Daughter of former Senate President David Mark and member representing Otukpo/Ohimini Federal Constituency of Benue, Hon. Blessing Onuh, has joined the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Naija News reports that the lawmaker dumped the All Progressive Grand Alliance(APGA) for the ruling party.

The member representing Bauchi Federal Constituency, Hon. Yakubu Abdullahi, also joined the APC from the Peoples Redemption Party (PRP).

Reading their defection letter on Tuesday, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, said the lawmakers dumped their party due to crisis at all levels of the parties.

On her part, David Mark's daughter said she decamped from APGA due to the crisis rocking the party.

She added that she decided to leave after serious consultation with her people.

Onuh commended the national leadership of the APC for making the defection possible.

Abdullahi said he decided to leave the PRP as a result of the crisis, which led to emergence of two national chairmen for the party as well as two chairmen in Bauchi state.

He accused Alhaji Falalu Bello and Prof. Sule Bello of laying claim to chairmanship of the party with two separate national headquarters.

He also said one of the factions of the party in Bauchi state wrote him a letter suspending him from the party.
