The legislators defected to the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) on Wednesday.
They announced their decision in separate letters to the Speaker, Hamisu Chidari.
Chidari, after receiving the letter, congratulated them and wished them well.
The lawmakers are Abdullahi Yaryasa (Tudun Wada), Muhammad Butu- Butu (Tofa/Rimin -Gado) and Kabiru Ismail (Madobi).
