The lawmaker representing Kogi West Senatorial District, Mr Dino Melaye, has finally abandoned the All Progressives Congress (APC) to rejoin the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The embattled Senator announced his defection on Wednesday on the floor of the Senate.
Mr Melaye was one of the new PDP members who joined APC in 2014 ahead of the 2015 general elections, which eventually kicked out the PDP as the ruling party.
The Kogi State lawmaker has been having it rough lately with the ruling APC government, especially with his state governor, Mr Yahaya Bello, over the control of the party at the state level.
Mr Melaye had been at the National Hospital, Abuja receiving treatment. However, he appeared at the Senate today on crutches and a neck brace to announce his defection to the PDP.
Recall that the police, while taking him to Lokoja, Kogi State few weeks ago from Abuja, to face trial, alleged that the lawmaker jumped out of the police vehicle.
