A member of the House of Representatives from Benue State, Samuel Godday, has defected from the Labour Party (LP) to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The defection was contained in a letter read by Speaker Femi Gbajabiamila on Tuesday.
In the letter, Godday cited a fraction in the Labour Party for his defection.
The ruling party continues to enjoy defection from all the minority parties in the House including the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Last week, a member from Rivers State, Chisom Dike, defected from PDP to the APC.
