The National Working Committee of the PDP on Tuesday urged urged the 9th National Assembly not to be a puppet to the executive arm of government.

It said that “The 9th National Assembly must work hard to save our nation from the prevailing despondency caused by the misrule of the President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration, by effectively applying its statutory legislative instruments to guarantee good governance and fiscal prudence, curb corruption, check the excesses of the executive and protect the rights of Nigerians from incessant violations”.

This advice was contained in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Mr Kola   Ologbondiyan which reminded “The PDP reminds NASS members to bear in mind that their allegiance is to the people and the constitution and not to any particular leader or group”.

According to him, “There is no reason to sanction anyone and come to think of it, it was an open secret balloting which does not leave room for identifying who voted for or against the party’s directive.”
