The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Tuesday called on the leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the President to allow members of the National Assembly to elect their leaders in the 9th Assembly.

The national chairman of PDP pointed out that democracy was under threat with the way APC want to impose leaders in the 9th Assembly.

PDP also noted that it would be wrong for the APC and the President to force leaders on the lawmakers, saying Ndume and others should be allowed to test their popularity among their colleagues.

Secondus however revealed that PDP has not taken a decision on who to support yet.

Secondus said, “We believe in multiplicity of ideas. Democracy is having more than one option. Though consensus is part of democracy, when that is not achievable, every contestant or interested person must be allowed to test their popularity. That is the beauty of democracy.

“It is wrong to force lawmakers or coerce them to follow a particular road or a particular candidate who they do not have confidence in. The President and his party should not plant moles as the leaders of the National Assembly.”

Secondus, therefore, asked the members of the National Assembly, especially the senators, to follow their conscience in choosing who would lead them.

“Senator Ali Ndume and other members of the Senate who are qualified to run for the office of the President of the Senate should be allowed to test their popularity,” he added.
