The defection was announced in a letter read on the floor of the House Thursday by the Acting Clerk, Mr. Azeez Sanni, while the Minority leader, Akeem Bello after notified his colleagues.
The Lawmakers who cross carpeted were: Mosunmola Sangodara, Surulere 2; Dayo Famakinwa, Ajeromi Ifelodun 1; Fatai Oluwa, Ajeromi Ifelodun 2; Jude Idimogwu, Oshodi-Isolo I and Hakeem Sokunle, Oshodi-Isolo 2.
