The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has rebuffed claims that it has plans to capitalize on the inability of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to reach a consensus and a candidate for the Senate Presidency.
Debunking the rumours on Wednesday, June 3, 2015, the National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Olisa Metuh, who spoke to journalists in Abuja said the PDP would not go against the norm of the majority party producing legislative leaders, adding that the party had resolved to present a formidable opposition in the incoming dispensation.
He said: “That was not part of the PDP retreat for members of the National Assembly in Port Harcourt. PDP has no such plot to upstage the All Progressives Congress in presenting leadership at the National Assembly.
“The truth is that it was not discussed at all at the Port Harcourt retreat. The truth is that we have no candidate for Senate President or Deputy Senate President.
“The truth is that we are ready to present a credible opposition to the All Progressives Congress as the ruling party. We wish President Muhammadu Buhari success and hope he would be able to turn around the economy.”
