The plenary session of the Nigerian Senate became rowdy today as it was about recording the first official cross-carpeting for the year 2018.

The rowdiness was as a result of the fact that Senator Sonni Ogbuoji ( Ebonyi South) had come under order 43 of the rules of the Senate to announce his official defection from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

However, when the floor was brought to decorum, Ogbuoji withdrew his earlier announcement.
In his words, “I came under order 43 with the intention that I needed to make some declarations this morning. But my party, the PDP felt I had not consulted with them enough.”
“So, because of the love they had shown to me in the past, I’m stepping down my decision to decamp”, Ogbuoji declared.
