Breaking: House Of Reps Approve President Buhari's N4trn Request For Petrol Subsidy

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has suspended Hon. Ndudi Elumelu (Aniocha/Oshimili-Delta State) and six other PDP members of the House of Representatives.

The other PDP reps that were also suspended include member representing Oriade/Obokun Federal Constituency of Osun State, Wole Oke; member representing Onitsha North and Onitsha South Federal constituency, Lynda Ikpeazu; member representing Ezza North/Ishielu federal constituency, Anayo Edwin; member representing Kaura Federal Constituency election in Kaduna State, Gideon Gwani; member representing Aninri/Awgu/Oji River Federal Constituency of Enugu State, Toby Okechukwu and member representing Ijebu-North/Ijebu-East / Ogun Waterside Federal Constituency, Adekoya Abdul-Majid.

Recalls that the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, had announced Ndudi Elumelu as the Minority Leader of the House of Representatives.

Naija News understands that the announcement of Elumelu is against the directive of the PDP who had sent a letter to the House stating that it had nominated Kingsley Chinda as the Minority Leader.

The PDP NWC had summoned the seven Reps to a meeting but none of the invited Reps was present during the meeting.

In a media briefing on Friday, the National Publicity Secretary of the opposition party, Kola Ologbondiyan said the suspension was part of the outcomes of the meeting of the PDP National Working Committee over the crisis surrounding the Minority Leadership of the House of Representatives.
