The National Publicity Secretary of The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Kola Ologbondiyan has said that its elected members into the senate and House of Representatives are free to seek election into any offices of their choice.
He described as funny, the notion that President Buhari and the APC chairman are positing that the presiding offices and Committee Chairmanship in the National Assembly are exclusive rights of the APC.
“The position of the President of the Senate, the Speaker of the House of Representatives as well as the Deputy Senate President and the Deputy Speaker are not the exclusive preserves of any political party, but a constitutional right of every elected lawmaker in both chambers” Ologbondiyan explained.
Citing several sections of the constitution, with relevant historical examples, Ologbondiyan affirmed that his party members had a chance in the National Assembly.
He concluded by saying the PDP has every constitutional right to present candidates into all offices.
