The two APC senators from Kebbi State announced their formal defections in two separate letters addressed to Senate President Ahmad Lawan, which were read in plenary on Tuesday.
Senators Aliero represents the senatorial districts of Kebbi Central and Abdullahi represents Kebbi North.
On June 15, the Senate Minority Leader, Enyinnaya Abaribe, formally defected from the Peoples Democratic Party to the All Progressives Grand Alliance.
The Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, was unable to bring his defection and resignation letter to plenary, so his defection and exit as Minority Leader were postponed.
Despite Lawan’s announcement to the contrary, it was agreed that Abaribe’s letter be read on the floor before his departure as Minority Leader, following a point of order raised by Sen. Gabriel Suswam (PDP- Benue).
With the exception of Abaribe, who is set to formally defect from the opposition party to APGA, the total number of PDP senators has increased to 39 from the previous 38.
It also reduced the number of APC Senators in the Senate from 71 to 69.
