The House of Representatives Minority caucus on Tuesday said the PDP caucus was united, indivisible, committed, and out to perform its duty as the watchdog on behalf of the Nigerians.

The caucus also declared that the one-life, one-minute silence security crisis in the country is no longer acceptable, insisting that the government must stop insecurity in three months or else Nigerians will be forced to defend themselves.

The meeting convened by Hon. Kingsley Chinda, the leader of the Caucus and House Minority Leader, was held for about two hours on Tuesday at the National Assembly in Abuja ahead of Thursday’s National Executive Committee (NEC) of the party.

Remember that last week, 60 PDP federal lawmakers threatened to leave the party if the manipulated list of Caretaker Committees in Rivers and 10 other states, filled with members and loyalists of the All Progressive Congress (APC), is not thrashed.

The group, under the patronage of the Opposition lawmakers coalition, also requested the resignation of the acting chairman of PDP, Damagun, to step down for a Northcentral person to emerge as acting chairman of the party pending the conduct of the convention as required by the party’s constitution.

He said: “We have just concluded the third meeting of the People’s Democratic Party caucus in the 10th Assembly and have resolved to tell all of us and the world that we are United and we are one and remained United, indivisible, committed, and out to perform her duty as the watchdog on behalf of the Nigerian people.

“We have just concluded the third meeting of the Peoples Democratic Party Caucus in the 10th Assembly, and we have resolved firstly to tell all of us and the world that the PDP caucus in the House of Representatives remains united, indivisible, committed, and out to perform her duty as the watchdog on behalf of the Nigerian people.

“In the same vein, we x-rayed the security situation in our country, and we resolved that we can no longer take this situation where Nigeria is today almost tagged as one life, one-minute silence.

“The government is therefore called upon to immediately take steps to ensure that the security situation in the country is normalized, and the caucus has also given a three-month ultimatum for the government to normalize the security situation in our country.

“After three months, the caucus will take further steps to sensitize and mobilize Nigerians to take their security into their hands perhaps.

“The House of Representatives caucus also agreed to call on all party caucuses, the board of trustees, the national executive committee, and the national working committee of the party to embark on reconciliatory measures with the view to resolve all litigations that are pending and that has hindered the party in any way whatsoever from having a substantive national chairman.

“We call on our leaders, leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party, to continue to demonstrate unconditional loyalty to the party and ensure that the party is moved to abide or place where she enjoyed the position of the largest party in Africa and to take back the Aso Villa which is actually supposed to be our birthright. And so, for us, we are going back as we resume the session to commence a strong, virile, and purpose-driven opposition to give the people a voice in the parliament.

“We call on our leaders in the PDP to continue to demonstrate unconditional loyalty to the party and ensure that the party reclaims her pride of place where she enjoys the position of the largest party in Africa and to take back the Aso Villa, which actually supposed to be our birthright.

“For us, we are going back as we resume the session to commence a strong, virile, and purpose-driven opposition to give the people a voice in the parliament. We also called on the Senate Leadership to please take steps to recall our colleague and senior brother, a veteran politician, a parliamentarian per excellence, Abdul Ningi.”
