The National leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has welcomed the defection of Aminu Tambuwal, Speaker of the House of Representatives from the party and advised him to resign as Speaker
The PDP argued that since Tambuwal was no longer in the ruling party with majority in the House, the honourable thing for him to do is to resign as Speaker of the House.
Tambuwal, on Tuesday, October 28, formally announced his defection from the PDP to the All Progressives Congress, APC.
Reacting to the development, Olisa Metuh, Publicity Secretary of the PDP said, “The National Working Committee of the Peoples Democratic Party has met with PDP leaders in the House of Representatives concerning the defection of the Speaker.
“After a thorough consideration of the matter, the NWC came to a conclusion that the Honourable Speaker, as a responsible elected officer, knows full well what is needful and honourable of him since his new party is in the minority.
“We are not unmindful of the fact that Honourable Tambuwal became Speaker on the platform of the PDP as the political party with the majority of seats in the House of Representatives and that this incontrovertible fact has not changed.”
