House of Representatives

Salisu Garba Koko, member representing Maiyama/Koko Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives, has left the All Progressive Congress (APC) for the Social Democratic Party (SDP).

He said the committee set up by the ruling APC to attend to issues of irregularities during the primaries didn’t help matters.

The National Publicity Secretary of SDP, Alfa Mohammed, in a statement said the defection of Hon Salisu Garba Koko brings the number of lawmakers who have defected to SDP in less than two weeks from APC to two.

The SDP spokesman added that more reps members were being expected in the days ahead as SDP has become the most accommodating and promising party for those unjustly treated in another party.
