Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) capacity was reduced by one seat with a loss of its representative in the House of Representatives on Tuesday as Ferdinand Dozie Nwankwo representing Njikoka/Anaocha/Dunukofia federal constituency of Anambra State took over the seat.
Nwankwo of All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), who was returned duly elected by the Appeal court was administered the oath of office by the Clerk of the House , Sani Omolori.
PDP now has 139 members while APGA has 5.
Noting that his victory was a reinforcement of the rule of law, the new lawmaker said Nigerians have cause to believe in the nation’s justice system.
As a consequence, Nwakwo said the anti-corruption drive of President Muhammadu Buhari’s government must be given all the support reqiured to succeed.
Saying that the need to rid the country of corrupt practices has become inevitable, he promised to work in concert with his colleagues to make good laws required to ensure good governance in the polity.
