According to the PDP leadership, Tambuwal should do the “needful” since his new party, APC, is in the minority in the House.

According to a statement issued by the PDP National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh, the ruling party did not minx words by asking Tambuwal to step aside.

The statement after reads:

“The National Working Committee of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has met with PDP leaders in the House of Representatives concerning the defection of the Speaker, His Excellency, Hon. Aminu Waziri Tambuwal to the APC.

“After a thorough consideration of the matter, the NWC came to a conclusion that the Hon. Speaker, as a responsible elected officer, knows full well what is needful and honourable of him since his new party is in the minority.

“We are not unmindful of the fact that Hon. Tambuwal became Speaker on the platform of the PDP as the political party with the majority of seats in the House of Representatives and that this incontrovertible fact has not changed”.
