Tambuwal: We ‘ll regain Speaker’s seat, PDP vows

THE national leadership of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, yesterday took a swipe at the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Aminu Tambuwal, who on Tuesday defected to All Progressives Congress, APC, saying the party would regain the speakership soon.

PDP National Vice Chairman, South South Zone, Dr. Cairo Ojougboh told reporters yesterday that God had exposed Tambuwal, who used the party to elevate himself and later dumped the platform that bought him to limelight.

Mallam-Aminu-TambuwalAccording to Ojougboh, “PDP is a disciplined party. If you use it to elevate yourself and get into office, when the time comes God will get you out, like the issue of Aminu Waziri Tambuwal.

“You can see how God has exposed them, and PDP will do everything within the law to regain its seat and that is what we are going to do in both Edo and Rivers states.”

The PDP zonal chairman boasted that the party will win Rivers’ governorship election and that “Amaechi will relocate to Ghana to meet his people there.

“Come May 29, 2015, I can assure you that Amaechi will not be there to hand over. Some people boasted in Adamawa State. Where are they?

“I am sure he is preparing his home in Ghana.”

Commenting on the denial of sale of presidential nomination forms to Dr. Abdul Jahlil Tafawa Balewa (son of First Republic Prime Minister), and Professor Akasoba Duke-Abiola (widow of late MKO Abiola), Ojougboh said: “The issue is that the party has taken a decision on the issue of the presidency at the National Executive Committee, NEC, and if they have paid, the matter will be addressed.”

Before Balewa and Duke-Abiola were denied the presidential nomination forms, they had reportedly paid N22 million and N2 million, respectively.
