PDP Caucus Lampoon APC Leadership, Reps Over Leadership Fracas

Published

on

123The Peoples Democratic Party members in the House of Representatives have lambasted their All Progressives Congress (APC) colleagues over the events of Thursday.

The APC lawmakers had engaged in a free for all over sharing of principal offices for the House.

Leo Ogor spoke on behalf of the PDP members.

“A very embarrassing and unpleasant action took place from the APC group. They decided to take laws into their hands, turned the House upside down and went as far as even carrying the mace which is the symbol of authority.

“Today became like a wasted day because motions that were supposed to have been taken that border on matters of national urgent importance that affect our constituencies. A host of other issues we were unable to take them due to the unacceptable action that you saw on the floor of the house”, Mr. Ogor said.

He appealed to the APC members to always respect the rules.

“I want to appeal specifically to the leadership of APC that there clear processes in addressing issues, this approach will not solve any problem. They have crisis within their own party, they should be able to resolve it than bring it to the green chamber.

“I find what happened today very embarrassing and if this is the kind of leadership and change they are trying to bring to Nigerians, we are not going to accept this modality of change”, he added.

“It is in our collective interest that we respect the principles of democracy in every democracy, the majority will always have their way and the minority will have their say. When elections were conducted, that election was very transparent and Dogara emerged.

“As a speaker he is no more a speaker of APC. He is speaker of the House of Representatives. He is guided by the 1999 constitution and our oath of allegiance stipulates very clearly that we will respect the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria without fear or favour”, he said.

In a related development, the House Ad-hoc committee on Media has apologized to Nigerians for the rowdy session.

He noted that even if the promises are not 100% fulfilled but the citizens see signs of commitment and progress, other parties should forget about displacing APC in 2023.

The former Lagos State Governor added that opposition parties are not doing better than the APC, hence should not expect Nigerians to vote for them come 2023.

He said: “Some governors have joined us, from where we think we could not get voters before. To retain power in 2023, certainly if we keep our promises, people will vote for us. It is that simple, that is politics,” the former Lagos governor said.

“If you do what you say you will do, even if you don’t do hundred percent and they see that you are making progress, they will even want you to finish what you started.”
