Femi Gbajabiamila, speaker of the house, announced Odagboyi’s defection on the floor of the green chamber on Tuesday.

Odagboyi, who represents Apa/Agatu federal constituency of Benue state, said he defected to the APC because of the “lingering crisis” in the LP.

“I have fully registered and commenced party activities. My exit has become necessary because of the lingering crisis on my former party. And your untiring leadership qualities displayed since the commencement of this assembly,” his letter reads.
