The appointments made by Senate President Godswill Akpabio and Speaker Tajudeen Abbas are mentioned, and a top-ranking PDP leader expresses criticism and discusses the party’s future steps.
PDP NWC Meeting on Minority Leaders
The National Working Committee (NWC) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is scheduled to convene a meeting to address the issue of National Assembly Minority Leaders.
The recent appointments made by Senate President Godswill Akpabio and Speaker Tajudeen Abbas, including the designation of Senator Simon Davou Mwadkwon as Senate Minority Leader, will be discussed.
Criticism and Party Unity
A top-ranking PDP leader, speaking on condition of anonymity, expresses criticism over the decision to read an unapproved list of Senators for minority positions.
The leader points out that there was prior knowledge of a list without the party’s input and highlights the failure to take preemptive action.
However, the leader acknowledges the need to move forward, rebuild the party, and maintain unity.
Picking Up the Pieces and Moving Forward
The PDP leader acknowledges the shortcomings and emphasizes the importance of rebuilding the party after the recent developments.
The focus is on regaining strength and unity within the opposition party.
The leader also warns against a weak and divided opposition, as it would potentially enable the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to establish a dominant one-party state and veer toward a dictatorship.
Addressing Party Concerns
The upcoming meeting of the PDP’s National Working Committee demonstrates the party’s commitment to addressing the concerns surrounding the appointment of National Assembly Minority Leaders.
The anonymous PDP leader’s criticism reflects an acknowledgment of the party’s flaws and the need to learn from past mistakes.
The emphasis on party unity and rebuilding signifies the PDP’s determination to remain a strong opposition force in the political landscape.
