With the defection of 15 Senators from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) for the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), the PDP now has the majority in the Senate and a lot of things are set to change with the Majority leader moving to a Senator from the PDP.
The defection was announced in a letter read during plenary by the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, and although the Senate Leader, Ahmed Lawal opposed the defection, saying the action of the affected lawmakers should be quarantined while the letter written by the defected lawmakers should be stood down, the Senators reportedly shouted him down as the defectors were widely welcomed by their colleagues in the PDP.
Here is the full list of the defectors and the constituencies they represent:
Dino Melaye (Kogi-West), Usman Nafada (Gombe), Ibrahim Dambaba (Sokoto), Mohammed Shittu (Jigawa), Isa Misau (Bauchi), Suleiman Nazif (Bauchi), Shaaba Lafiagi (Kwara), and Barnabas Gemade (Benue).
Others are Abdul-Azeez Murtala-Nyako (Adamawa), Rabi’u Kwankwaso (Kano-Central),  Adesoji Akanbi (Oyo-South), Monsurat Sunmonu (Oyo-Central), Rafiu Ibrahim (Kwara-South), Suleiman Hunkuyi (Kaduna-North), and Lanre Tejuoso (Ogun-Central)
