Reps Minority Caucus Passes Vote-of -Confidence On Ndudi Elumelu & Others by kahal29: 5:42pm On Jul 08
The Minority Caucus in the House of Representative has called on the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to rescind its decision on the suspension of Minority Principal Officers of the House.

At a news conference on Monday in Abuja, the caucus passed a vote of confidence on the suspended officers as well as Speaker Femi Gbajabiamila.

The National Working Committee (NWC) of the PDP had on Thursday, July 4, suspended Rep. Ndudi Elumelu(PDP-Delta), who is the Minority Leader of the house.

The party also suspended Rep. Toby Okechukwu(PDP-Enugu), the Deputy Minority Leader; Rep. Gideon Gwani(PDP-Kaduna), the Minority Whip, Rep. Adesegu Adekoya(PDP-Ogun), the Deputy Minority and two ranking members, Rep. Wole Oke (PDP-Ogun) and Rep. Lynda Ikpeazu (PDP-Anambra).


The PDP had earlier endorsed Rep. Kingsley Chinda (PDP-Rivers) as the Minority Leader, Rep. Chukwuka Onyema (PDP-Anambra), Deputy Minority Leader, Rep. Yakubu Bade (PDP-Kaduna) as Minority Whip and Rep. Muraina Ajibola (PDP-Oyo) as Deputy Minority Whip.

Speaking on behalf of the caucus, Rep. Legor Idagbo (PDP-Cross River) said the selection of the officers was in conformity with the house rules and Order 7 Rule 8, which derives strength from section 60 of the 1999 Constitution as amended.

Quoting the rules, Idagbo said: “members of the minority parties in the house shall nominate from among themselves, the Minority Leader, Minority Whip, Deputy Minority Leader and Deputy Minority Whip.”

Idagbo said that members of the minority parties adhered to the provisions of the rules in selecting Rep. Ndudi Elumelu, as Minority Leader.

He said that the rule was also applied in selecting Rep. Toby Okechukwu as Deputy Minority Leader, Rep. Gideon Gwani as Minority Whip and Rep. Adesegun Adekoya as Deputy Minority Whip.


He said Speaker Femi Gbajabiamila (APC-Lagos) was communicated by majority members of minority parties on July 2 and the decision which was announced on July 3, 2019.

Idagbo said that the parliament since 1999 had remained an independent body as it has not been coerced into accepting any leadership imposed by external influence.

“We would like to appeal to our party chairman and the NWC of our great party, who we know are seasoned and experienced politicians that understand this dynamics to rescind their earlier decision to suspend our leaders.


“Through no fault of theirs were nominated and elected by majority of members of the minority parties; were an offense to had been committed in this process, the perpetrators would be all 111 of us not six members as were suspended by our great party.


“We use this opportunity to sue for peace and to state that we are available for further discussions with the NWC of our great party on how to resolve these issues and move our party forward,” he said.

The caucus called on well- meaning party leaders, particularly those with legislative experience to intervene in order to salvage the situation.

The lawmakers commended the National Chairman of the PDP, Mr Uche Secondus for the great job of piloting the affairs of the party that had seen its fortune increased in the last few years.

The caucus said it remained resolute to work closely with the national chairman and the party in ensuring that it returns to power in 2023.

I like this biiko.

Rivers state style of politics is not allowed here. Wike should limit that his style in PH. Trying to bring it into national politics will make him to suffer serial flop and shame.

Rivers state does not have up to ten reps so he cant win any battle except he aligns with regions. He should humble himself in national politics.

I SO ADVICE.

If PDP insist on Chinda then they should let the Minority Members in the house vote for their choices. I’m sure Chinda won’t get up to 50 Votes.

The one reason PDP suspended them is because of the relationship between Chinda and PDP national chairman Uche Secondus

Why are you APC joker's fixated on this issue?

Cowardice ...

The suspension was done in bad faith and shows the shallow thinking of those in the pdp NWC.
It indeed stands logic on its head for such a decision to be taken in the face of weighty facts.
Secondus and his godfather should take this style of politics to the motor parks at waterlines and stop the further disgrace of the former largest party in Africa.

The irony if this scenario is that Wike even do worst than this in Rivers during last house of Assembly in Rivers. A scenario where the choice of APC member as a minority member was rejected and the PDP member imposed their own choice of minority on APC which happened to be minority. I still don't understand how these politicians think. Everything must go their way either way. Same PDP that was accusing PBM of imposing the principal officers of their on the national assembly is even doing worse. It's well with our politicians, I doubt if they actually think at all

Did the minority PDP reps pass a Vote of confidence on Gbaja and Elumelu? Yes or no.

It is because Pdp is full of people like you that they have sunk so low.

Fixated on which issue?
You think this is Rivers House of Assembly?

Wike and his dog Secondus have been mercilessly whipped by Gbaja and we've moved on to the next Pdp miscreant to chop beating.

Sit here and be barking. Those who get sense pass you for PDP don move on.

When you grow a brain you would realize that Channels TV is without doubt a pro-APC platform with the station making little or no attempt to hide their bias.
