APC Meddling In Senate Minority Leadership Selection- PDP NWC


In a statement on Monday, the national working committee (NWC) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) alleged that the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) is interfering in the selection of the minority leadership of the 10th Senate.

The PDP spokesperson, Debo Ologunagba, accused the APC of engaging in “subterranean moves” to influence the opposition party’s selection process. The PDP NWC is currently in the process of consultations to nominate members for the minority leadership positions in the senate.

As part of these ongoing consultations, the PDP NWC had a meeting with members of the party’s senate caucus. During the meeting, the importance of having a strong and stable opposition in the national assembly was emphasized.

He said the “caucus assured that it will play that important role in the defence of democracy” and “in the interest and wellbeing of Nigerians.”

“The meeting condemned in its entirety the alleged subterranean moves by the All Progressives Congress (APC) to meddle with the affairs of the minority with regards to the emergence of the minority leadership which is an exclusive reserve of the minority caucus as expressly stipulated by constitutional provisions and standing rules of the senate,” the statement reads.

“The PDP and the senators continue with consultations on the emergence of the minority leadership in the senate and are resolved to collectively present a unified leadership after due and conclusive considerations. Accordingly, the PDP will continue to provide the necessary leadership in this regard.”

Ologunagba stated that it was the responsibility of the PDP NWC to inform Senate President Godswill Akpabio that the selection process for the minority leadership positions was still ongoing and had not been finalized.

He further mentioned that once the process was concluded, the list of nominees would be officially communicated to the senate president for appropriate action. Ologunagba expressed the party’s appreciation for the unity, determination, loyalty, and dedication displayed by the members in the senate, which contributes to the preservation and strengthening of democracy in our nation.
