The senator representing Cross River central, John Enoh has defected from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Speaking on the floor of the senate on Tuesday, Enoh said he had registered as a member of the APC in his ward.He cited personal reasons for his defection.
At this point, the chamber became rowdy as APC senators got up to welcome Enoh to the party.
The Senate President, Bukola Saraki, welcomed him to the APC amid protests by PDP senators.
“I wish him fruitful service to his people on the platform he has chosen,” Saraki said.
