PDP Congratulates New National Assembly Leadership by dre11(m): 10:17pm On Jun 11
*Charges lawmakers to protect legislative independence, rule of law


From Chuks Okocha in Abuja



The National Working Committee (NWC) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has congratulated the 9th National Assembly for its successful inauguration.

According to a statement issued by the party, PDP also acknowledged the newly elected Senate President, Ahmed Lawan; Deputy Senate President, Ovie Omo-Agege; as well as the newly elected Speaker, Femi Gbajabiamila, and Deputy Speaker Ahmed Wase.

PDP backed candidates – Senator Ali Ndume and Hon. Umar Bago – had lost the Senate presidency and the speakership, respectively, to the candidates backed by the ruling All Progressives Congress on Tuesday.

While commending all those who made the contest robust for helping to deepen democratic practice, the PDP said it will always stand on the side of decency and utmost respect for the institution of the National Assembly and the values Nigerians hold as a people.

“Our party therefore charges the federal lawmakers, as representatives of the people, to place the welfare, wishes and aspirations of Nigerians above every other considerations by ensuring a strong and independent legislature that upholds the tenets of democracy and the dictates of our constitution.

“The 9th National Assembly therefore 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 the National Assembly members to bear in mind that their allegiance is to the people and the constitution and not to any particular leader or group.

“Our party therefore charges the legislature to work only in the interest of our nation and resist the manipulations and pressure that might come from quarters that seek to undermine our democratic order.

“On our part, the PDP, as a party, will remain truly committed to the welfare of Nigerians. We shall continue to keep our focus on the quest for good governance, national cohesion and economic well-being of the people, even as we pursue our collective aspiration for the successful retrieval of our stolen presidential mandate at the tribunal,” tte PDP said.

Very soon PMB will realise that he has committed a great blunder by allowing Oshimole and Tinubu to tricked him into supporting Lawan and Gbaja as Senate president and speaker of the house of representative respectively.

It would have been better for him to stay neutral and allow the National Assembly members elects it's own leaders.

Is it not rather curious that most PDP reps and senators also supported this arrangement? The 9th assembly is going to present unprecedented dramas that will make Nigerians realized that Saraki was a stabilizing factor in the 8th Assembly.

The beauty of this is that this ninth assembly will be a hard nut to crack by the presidency. Those who thinks that Lawal and Gbaja will be PMB's puppets are politically naived.

There is no doubt about it that Tinubu is a Master political strategist. He can now effectively checkmark the cabal through the present configuration of the National assembly.

So, you Igbos have turned to unsolicited adviser to Buhari. All your masters have been ruined and you're desperately looking for the next Fulani to start worshipping.

Shebi you said that Atiku would defeat Buhari with minimum of 4M votes, now you're advising Buhari out of the overflowing ignorance bedevilling you.

My friend, better go and think about your political future cos as at today, na offside of life una dey.

You are politically worthless.

Keep crying like a bushbaby on Nairaland when your PDP ogas who sent you on a foolish errand have gone behind you to congratulate APC.

Let me even ask you. What if Saraki dumped Ekweremadu and all Igbos slaving for him and even got some his boys to vote Lawan?
Why do you think he hurriedly congratulated them?

You Igbos have been caught offside as usual. Unclad and defenceless.
