The caucus of the main opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has denied media reports that it directed its members to support any House of Representatives speakership candidate.
In a statement on Wednesday by the house minority leader, Leo Ogor, the lawmaker described it as the handwork of propagandists who are mischievously twisting a goodwill message to imply support for a speakership aspirant.
Ogor was alleged to have said the caucus is not against its members working with speakership aspirants of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Ogor emphasised that the caucus has directed its members to participate in meetings and strategy sessions of the APC speakership aspirants.
However, it never directed them to consider voting for any of the aspirants.
According to the minority leader, 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.
