In Kebbi State, the All Progressive Congress (APC) has lost eight legislators to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Five members of the National Assembly and three members of the state House of Assembly were among the lawmakers.
The ruling party, the All Progressive Congress (APC), purportedly staged its primary elections in such a way that most party members were dissatisfied, resulting in a large exodus to the main opposition, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan, has urged striking National Assembly workers to cease their strike and engage in discussion to resolve their differences quickly.
Ola Awoniyi, Mr. Lawan’s spokesman, stated this in Abuja on Friday.
Lawan made the request at a meeting called by him to find a solution to the persisting concerns between the workers and the National Assembly’s management, he said.
Bola Tinubu, the All Progressives Congress’s presidential candidate, has claimed that Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi is his son.
Tinubu said this while praising Bello for mobilizing youths’ awareness throughout his campaign.
He revealed this when he paid a visit to Bello in Abuja, just 72 hours after announcing himself as the APC’s presidential candidate for 2023.

Festus Okoye, the INEC National Commissioner and Chairman of the Information and Voter Education Committee, revealed this in an Abuja statement on Friday.
