The Senator representing Abia South Senatorial District, who assumed minority leadership in 2019, was elected on the Peoples Democratic Party PDP platform but defected to the All Progressives Grand Alliance APGA due to an unresolved crisis while seeking the 2023 governorship ticket.

Abaribe, has since submitted his letter of resignation to the President of the Senate Ahmad Lawan, but the letter was postponed for reading today, after which Abaribe would resign and will be subsequently led to his new seat in the Red Chambers.

Lawan, however, further confirmed that the opposition leader has defected, saying the detail will be made known today.
