You Became House Of Reps. Speaker Under PDP, So You Must Resign For Defecting

    The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP,
    has urged the speaker of the House of Representatives, Aminu Tambuwal, to leave
    office after Mr. Tambuwal officially announced his defection from the party to
    All Progressives Congress, APC, according to Premium Times.
    The clearest indication he was
    joining the opposition party came more than a week ago when he attended a
    meeting of the APC in Sokoto State.
    He said the state governor, Aliyu
    Wammako, had invited him for the meeting after he was snubbed by a visiting PDP
    delegation to the state, led by Tony Anenih, the Board of Trustees chairman.

    His months of denial is believed
    to have been informed by his concerns about losing his position as the speaker.
    The PDP said its National Working
    Committee has met with its leaders in the House of Representatives concerning
    the defection of the speaker, and after due considerations, it said the speaker
    should do what is honourable since his new party is in the minority.
    “After a thorough consideration of
    the matter, the NWC came to a conclusion that the Hon. 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 Hon. 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.”
