The national leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party is to meet with newly elected senators and members of the House of Representatives soon.
The meeting will determine who among the numerous candidates to support among those aiming at becoming President of the Senate and Speaker of the House of Representatives.
The National Publicity Secretary of the party, Chief Olisa Metuh, disclosed this in a telephone interview with our correspondent in Abuja on Friday.
Metuh said until the meeting is held, the party could not say which candidate it would support or not.
But he said that the party would support its members in the National Assembly to be active and also support the cause of the party.
He said, “Well, we have met with them on the need to support the national leadership of the party as we plan to reposition the party. They have agreed to work with us on this matter.
Attempts to get a reaction from the APC were futile.
Several calls to the mobile telephone number of the National Publicity Secretary of the party, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, were neither picked nor returned.
The first call was at 3:21pm, the second was at 3:23 and a text message on the subject was sent to him at 3:31pm.
This was followed by another set of calls made at 4:17pm and 6:32pm, none of these efforts elicited a response as of the time of filing this report (6:35PM).
