Nigeria: Lawmakers Leave Ruling Party

Eleven lawmakers from Nigeria's ruling People's Democratic Party announced Jan. 29 that they will defect to the main opposition All Progressives Congress, AFP reported Jan. 30. The announcement marks the latest in a series of defections that included 37 lawmakers in December and five state governors in November. President Goodluck Jonathan's elevation to the highest office in 2010 helped consolidate the goal of militants and elites from the oil-producing Niger Delta region to achieve a meaningful stake in national decision-making.
