…….. Save Nigeria from Buhari’s misrule, PDP tells lawmakers


The National Working Committee of the PDP on Tuesday congratulated the 9th National Assembly.

The PDP in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Mr Kola Ologbondiyan, said, “The 9th National Assembly must work hard to save our nation from the prevailing despondency caused by the misrule of the President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration, by effectively applying its statutory legislative instruments to guarantee good governance and fiscal prudence, curb corruption, check the excesses of the executive and protect the rights of Nigerians from incessant violations.

“The PDP reminds NASS members to bear in mind that their allegiance is to the people and the constitution and not to any particular leader or group.”

We won’t sanction our lawmakers – PDP

But the PDP said that it would not sanction its senators and members of the House of Representatives for not heeding to the directive of the party on the candidates to vote for during the election.

The opposition party had adopted Alli Ndume, Ike Ekweremadu and Bago as the Senate president, deputy and the speaker.

The PDP Deputy National Publicity Secretary, Mr Diran Odeyemi, in a response to The PUNCH in Abuja on Tuesday said, “There is nothing new in what happened and it is not unexpected… There is no reason to sanction anyone and come to think of it, it was an open secret balloting which does not leave room for identifying who voted for or against the party’s directive.”
