The All Progressives National Chairman, Adams Oshiomole, has warned the newly-elected members of the House of Representatives against divisiveness but to respect the party’s constitution as relates to the issue of leadership of the House.
Oshiomole told the elected members that consultation had been made with President Buhari over those who become leaders of the House.
“We shall carry out extensive consultations with Buhari and other leaders of the party to harmonise issues and, work out a sensible zoning formula that seek to carry everybody along.
“We shall not again share any of the critical positions in the leadership of the House of Representatives with the opposition PDP including chairmanship of sensitive committees.
“We have overwhelming majority even if we want to amend the constitution.
“I’m happy to say that in the same token, the Nigerian people have expressed less confidence in the opposition PDP.
“For us to enjoy our numerical strength, we should recognise we were elected by the party’s platform.
“APC will nominate the right candidates to occupy the speaker, deputy speaker, leader ,Chief whip, deputy chief whip and others. However, we shall only allow the opposition to occupy the Minority leader and chairmanship of the public accounts committee as provided by the constitution.
“Our challenge is to have a leadership of the House of Representatives that will share the same vision with the executive.
“We are one family as shown in our broom.
“We have the number and we will use the number to elect the leaders we want,” he said.
Reacting, some of the newly-elected lawmakers, who spoke on behalf of their colleagues, pledged their undivided loyalty to the blueprint of the ruling party in the discharge of their legislative duties.
The National Working Committee, NWC, of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, Monday brainstormed the party’s newly elected members of the House of Representatives to ensure it occupies critical leadership position in forthcoming 9th consensus election of the lower chamber’s leadership.
