NASS Election: We Want to Know Who Will Be the Presiding Officers- PDP

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has stated that its priority for the time being is to maximize its numerical strength with other opposition parties in order to determine the emergence of the Presiding Officers of the two chambers of the National Assembly on Tuesday, June 13, 2023.

The party, which stated that it will not allow any distractions at this time, asked its members and other stakeholders to dismiss the report on National Assembly Minority leadership.

According to a statement issued by PDP spokesman Hon. Debo Ologunagba, “the attention of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has been called to speculations and allegations making the rounds and stating that certain individuals have been designated for Minority leadership positions ahead of the inauguration of the 10th National Assembly slated for Tuesday, June 13, 2023.

The statement reads: “Such rumours and reports do not represent the true position of affairs in our Party and among our National Assembly members-elect.

“For clarity, the PDP is on the same page with our lawmakers-elect in focusing, for now, on maximizing our numerical strength with other opposition Parties to determine the emergence of the Presiding Officers of the two chambers of the National Assembly on Tuesday, June 13, 2023 and will not allow any distractions at this moment.

“The interest of the PDP is to ensure that whoever emerges as the Speaker of the House of Representatives must be a person with long standing relevant managerial and legislative experience, leadership capacity and past legislative achievements as a member of the House of Representatives.

“At the right time, the PDP together with our members in the National Assembly will speak with one voice on any issues with regard to other leadership positions in the federal legislature.”

The PDP therefore urged Nigerians to disregard the said rumour and reports as its party and members-elect at the moment have eyes on the ball on the election of the Presiding Officers of the two chambers of the National Assembly in the general interest of the people of Nigeria.
