Members elect of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) to the 9th National Assembly are yet to endorse aspirants of the All Progressive Congress (APC) seeking to be elected the next Speaker of the House of Representatives.

Leo Ogor, Minority Leader of the outgoing 8th House of Representatives, made this known in Abuja on Wednesday.
He said, “Propagandists are mischievously twisting a goodwill message (issued by him on Tuesday) to imply support for one of the Speakership aspirants.
He said, the caucus had directed its members to participate in meetings and strategy sessions of the APC Speakership aspirants, and not to consider voting for any one of them.

“Even though some confused elements in the ruling party are claiming to be ‘talking to one part of the PDP House caucus before talking to the other’, the PDP House caucus remains resolutely united, with decisive plans for strengthening democratic growth while patriotically exerting influence on the Speakership election process.” He said.
Meanwhile, he said the national leaders of the PDP and its caucus members would consider the national interest and take a collective decision on who they will vote for come June 11 during the House inauguration.
The statement read, “In the Eid-al-Fitri message issued on Tuesday, we emphasized the significance of worthy virtues and also stated that our members may participate in meetings, strategy sessions and other activities of Speakership aspirants so as to come back to the caucus with convincing assessments.
“While some publications, including The PUNCH, have disseminated accurate and objective report, a few others fabricated a completely new angle with one even using a deliberately fictitious and grossly erroneous headline in a manner that suggests being used for the ruling party’s usual misinformation and propaganda.”
