National Assembly leadership: We’ll strike at the right time – PDP

The People’s Democratic Party, PDP, has stated that it is monitoring situations in the campaign of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, concerning the election of the presiding officers of the Ninth National Assembly.

According to the PDP, which promises to strike at the right time, it is aware of plans by the APC to sideline its members in the election.

Chairman of the party, Uche Secondus said the PDP also have what he called “unshaken confidence” in its lawmakers- elect , adding that “they are all capable to take decisions that are in the best interest of Nigeria, Nigerians and are all good party men and women.”

He added, “We are not bothered about the hue and cry by the ruling party of their winner takes all position.

“We know that politics is about negotiations, discussions and listening to people.

“The Senate is made up of former governors who have served for eight years, ex-ministers and even ambassadors. Some deputy governors are there as well.

“You don’t just summon and bark out orders at such men and women. National Assembly is the nation’s symbol of democracy.

“As a party, we are keenly watching what is ongoing. We are also hearing what some are saying about how they want to control the assembly and all that.

“We are not used to making noise. Rather, we discuss, we negotiate and we agree. When the time comes for us to take a position, we know when to strike. That is politics for you.

“Notable political players who know their onions don’t make noise on the pages of newspapers and on the screen of television stations. We know what we are doing as a party. “

Secondus also revealed that he preferred to be underrated by opponents before any election, just as his party was underrated in the just concluded 2019 general elections.

“They said we were dead as a political party before the just-concluded general elections. We started with 11 states in December 2017, but got 13 states before the election. Now, we have 15 states with the hope that we would still get more because technically, we are in charge of Osun now.

“If we were not rigged out in some states and at the national level, we would have been in charge of more states. So, let the noise makers continue with their noise, while we keep talking to the people that matter,” he added.
