PDP Speaks On Minority Leadership Tussle in House Of Reps
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) says it has not taken any position on the minority leadership tussle among its members in the house of representatives.
The National publicity secretary of the party, Kola Ologbondiyan, said the party is yet to receive any report from the committee set up to intervene in the matter.
The party had in July suspended Ndudi Elumelu and six others over the role they were alleged to have played in the emergence of Elumelu as the minority leader of the house which was against the wish of the party.
The board of trustees (BoT) of the party had set up a five-member committee led by Iyorchia Ayu, a former senator, to investigate the crisis.
Ologbondiyan said the clarification was necessary for the light of public enquiries and conflicting reports on the position of the leadership of the party on the matter.
“The NWC hereby clarifies that it has not yet received any report from the BoT concerning the outcome of the five-member committee it set up to intervene on the contentious matter,” Ologbondiyan said.
“Consequently, the NWC maintains that it has not taken any decision to review its subsisting stance on the minority leader of the House of Representatives.
“The NWC, therefore, urges critical stakeholders, party members and the general public to completely disregard any report to the contrary.”
