The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has dismissed speculations that certain persons have been picked for the minority leadership positions for the 10th National Assembly.
The party made this known in a statement by its spokesman, Debo Ologunagba in Abuja.
Ologunagba noted that the disclaimer became necessary in the light of unfounded rumours and reports to the contrary.
He further said, “The interest of the PDP is to ensure that whoever emerges as the Speaker of the House of Representatives must be a person with long standing relevant managerial and legislative experience, leadership capacity and past legislative achievements as a member of the House of Representatives.
“At the right time, the PDP together with our members in the National Assembly will speak with one voice on any issues with regard to other leadership positions in the federal legislature.”
He said the party was, at the moment, focused on who emerges as Speaker and Senate President and would not tolerate any distractions in the form of its likely choice for minority positions until the presiding positions are decided.
