Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, on Wednesday declared the seat of late Funke Adedoyin vacant.

Adedoyin, until her demise last month, was a member of the House of Representatives from Kwara State under the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

"I wish to declare vacant the seat of late Olufunke Adedoyin, who was until her death an honorable member representing Ekiti/Irepodun Constituency of Kwara State in the House of Representatives.

"This is in compliance with the requirements of the 1999 Constitution as amended," the Speaker announced on the floor of the House.

Meanwhile, two members of the House of Representatives on Wednesday defected from the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to other parties.

Whereas Musa Soba from Kaduna State defected from the PDP to the African Democratic Congress (ADC), Hassan Omale from Kogi State defected from the APC but is yet to announce his new political party.

Speaker Yakubu Dogara, who announced the two defections on the floor of the House during Wednesday's plenary, said it was in line with Section 68 (1) (g) of the 1999 Constitution as amended.
