The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) senators have been reduced to 38 following the gale of defection that has hit the Party in recent times.
Before the recent defections, PDP which had 44 senators in June 2019 during the inauguration of the 9th Senate, had earlier lost Senator Elisha Cliff Abbo (Adamawa North) to the APC last year.
The resignation of PDP senator and their movement into the All Progressives Congress (APC) has increased the ruling party senators to 70.
The Young Progressives Party (YPP) still retains its one member -Senator Ifeanyi Ubah (Anambra South).
Among the recent defectors to All Progressive Congress (APC) are; Senator Sahabi Ya’u (Zamfara North); Lawali Hassan Anka (Zamfara West); and Peter Nwaoboshi (Delta North).
