David Mark’s daughter dumps APGA for APC

Blessing Onuh daughter of former Senate President David Mark has joined the All Progressives Congress from the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA).

She represents Otukpo/Ohimini Federal Constituency in Benue.

Also, Yakubu Abdullahi who represents Bauchi Federal Constituency has left the People’s Redemption Party (PRP) for the APC.

In two separate letters read on Tuesday by Speaker Femi Gbajabiamila, the two lawmakers said they were leaving the parties that sponsored their elections due to crisis.

Mrs Onuh said she was leaving APGA due to leadership crisis at all levels of the party, adding she decided to leave after serious consultation with her people.

She commended the national leadership of the APC for making the defection possible.

Onuh formally joined the APC at a well-attended event in her constituency in December 2020.

Mr Abdullahi said he decided to leave the PRP as a result of the crisis, which led to emergence of two national chairmen for the party as well as two chairmen in Bauchi.
