Embattled Senator Dino Melaye representing Kogi West Senatorial District in the Senate has abandoned his political party, the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Melaye defected to the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) on Wednesday when he resumed plenary after battling allegations he was involved in certain crimes.

He moved from the APC wing in the Senate to the PDP and was seen seated close to former Senate President David Mark, who is a staunch member of the PDP.

Senator Melaye, who was wooed on Monday by PDP’s Bayelsa East Senator Ben Murray-Bruce to resume plenary today, appeared in the red chambers donning a cervical collar, and using a walking stick.

Senator Murray-Bruce charged the former APC Senator to resume plenary in whatever condition he is, stressing that the National Assembly has not felt the same since he has been away.

“I want Dino Melaye to come to the Senate on Wednesday even if he is on crutches. The Nigerian Senate is not the same without Dino. We miss him. I know he is on crutches but I want him to come on Wednesday and I will stand with him,” Murray-Bruce tweeted on Monday.

Senator Melaye is yet to release an official statement on this development.
