After the hurricane of defection, the Senate leader, Ahmed Lawan, demanded that the decision APC still has a larger part in the Senate with 52 senators. He gave a rundown of the APC legislators.
In any case, Nigeriadailytimes.com takes note of that as at the time Senator Lawan discharged the list, Senator Lanre Tejuosho from Ogun central senatorial region, who was one of the representatives that defected to the PDP, had not revoked his choice.
Along these lines, if Senator Tejuosho is added to the list of the APC legislators as he has declared his arrival, the APC will have 53 representatives in the upper chamber, as per Senator Lawan’s list. Lawan included that the PDP has 50 seats while ADC has three and APGA has two.
“The essence of this press preparation is to tell you that despite the fact that a portion of our colleagues have left, the APC remains the greater part party in the Senate regarding numbers. Out of the 109 legislators, APC has 52, the PDP has 50, ADC has three and APGA has two. Furthermore, you’ll review that we lost two of our associates.
So we have two empty seats and the aggregate gives you 109,” the Senate pioneer said. Passing by Senator Lawan’s announcement, the aggregate number of possessed seats in the Senate is 107 (not 109 said by Lawan). The staying two seats, Katsina North and Bauchi South, to make 109 are empty right now.
Be that as it may, another report by Channels TV asserts the PDP is currently in the larger part, especially after the defection of Senator Saraki.
As indicated by the report, the PDP presently has 54 while the APC has 50. The report included that regardless of whether the APC wins the two empty seats, it will in any case be in the minority with 52 representatives.
Despite the fact that the report records the quantity of the legislators and their geopolitical zones, it doesn’t particularly specify their names.
