10TH SENATE: “ONGOING ATTEMPT TO DESTABILISE THE MINORITY PARTIES IN THE SENATE WOULD BE RESISTED.” MINORITY POLITICAL PARTIES
24th June, 2023
It has come to the notice of the Minority Political Parties in the Senate of an attempt.
by forces inside and outside the Senate to divide the Minority Parties and foist a pliant and compromised leadership on them.
We have pledged to work constructively with the new Senate leadership and the Executive branch to deliver good governance to the Nigerian people. We consequently hereby advise and caution that they should not aid any group inside or outside the Senate to divide and destabilise the minority parties and the Senate institution.
Senators of the minority Parties would meet when the Senate reconvenes and, in consultation with our respective political parties, would select its leaders without undue interference from anti democratic forces within or outside the Senate.
For the avoidance of doubt, no Senator has yet been endorsed or selected for any Minority position as this would await due process as agreed by all Minority Parties in their last meeting.
Attempt to foist a one party dictatorship would be resisted and would fail.
We call on all members of the Minority Political Parties to work together in unity to defend the democratic institution of the Senate and Nigeria.
