Reps Minority Caucus Rejects Calls For PDP Chairman’s Resignation

The Minority Caucus of the House of Representatives, representing the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has distanced itself from Rep. Ikenga Ugochinyere and a coalition of 60 opposition lawmakers, stating that such a group is not recognized within the parliament.

In a statement jointly signed by all caucus leaders, including Kingsley Chinda, Ali Madaki, Ali Isah J.C., and George Ozodinobi, they emphasized their refusal to be associated with the said coalition. The statement labeled a press conference held by Ugochinyere and five others, along with 54 purported members, as “unparliamentary.”

“Our attention has been drawn to a press release by the group, and state unequivocally that the Minority Caucus and PDP Caucus dissociate themselves from the said press statement. 

“The said coalition of lawmakers led by Hon Ikenga Ugochinyere is unknown to the parliament, and both caucuses condemn in totality, the absurd move, uncouth, and unparliamentary language of the group.

“That the general public should take note that such a coalition is unknown to parliament, and their demands do not represent those of the minority parties.

“The said lawmakers should desist from further misinformation of the public and be more honourable in their conduct.

60 federal lawmakers from the PDP, unified under the Opposition Lawmakers Coalition, have issued a threat to leave the party unless the allegedly manipulated list of Local Government caretaker committees in Rivers and 10 other states, perceived to be stacked with APC members and loyalists, is rectified. They have also accused the PDP chairman of engaging in activities detrimental to the party’s interests, suggesting intentions to hand over the party to the APC.

Furthermore, they have called for the resignation of the acting PDP chairman, Umar Damagun, advocating for a North Central representative to assume the interim chairmanship until the convention is held in accordance with the party’s constitution. Additionally, they have alleged a scheme by the PDP chairman to impeach Rivers state governor, Siminalayi Fubara.
