The speaker of the House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Aminu Tambuwal has finally defected to opposition party, the All Progressive Congress, APC.
Since the formation of the party, the Speaker has always shown his sympathy for APC and has always associated with its leaders while also at the same time distancing himself from major PDP functions.
Before his defection, many political observers saw in him a presidential candidate the opposition party may be willing to gamble with. It is yet to be confirmed if he will throw his cap into the ring as a presidential aspirant.
