The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) recently emphasized its dedication to determining the leaders of the 10th National Assembly.
In a statement issued by the party’s national publicity secretary, Debo Ologunagba, the PDP debunked rumors suggesting the designation of certain individuals for Minority leadership positions in the 10th NASS.
Focus on Presiding Officers:
According to Ologunagba, the immediate concern of the PDP and its elected lawmakers is to influence the selection process for the Presiding Officers of the two chambers of the National Assembly.
The assembly is set to be inaugurated on June 13, 2023.
Once this crucial matter is resolved, the PDP will address the issue of Minority Leadership positions.
Until then, the public is advised to disregard any rumors about preferred candidates for these positions.
Clarifying the Party’s Stance:
The PDP released a statement titled ‘Disregard Reports on NASS Minority Leadership – PDP’ to set the record straight.
The party emphasized that the rumors circulating regarding Minority leadership positions do not reflect the actual situation within the party or among its members-elect in the National Assembly.
Maximizing Numerical Strength:
The PDP clarified that it aligns with its lawmakers-elect in prioritizing the consolidation of numerical strength with other opposition parties.
This collaboration aims to influence the selection of the Presiding Officers during the inauguration on June 13, 2023. The party is determined to avoid distractions during this crucial period.
Requirements for Speaker of the House:
The PDP expressed its interest in ensuring that the individual elected as the Speaker of the House of Representatives possesses substantial managerial and legislative experience, strong leadership skills, and notable achievements as a member of the House.
Unified Voice on Leadership:
The PDP assured that it will speak collectively with its members in the National Assembly at the appropriate time regarding other leadership positions in the federal legislature.
However, the party’s immediate focus remains on the election of the Presiding Officers, as it is crucial for the overall benefit of the Nigerian people.
The PDP urged Nigerians to dismiss the aforementioned rumors and reports, emphasizing that the party and its members-elect are fully committed to the election of the Presiding Officers of the two chambers of the National Assembly.
Their aim is to prioritize the best interests of the Nigerian people during this significant process.
