Abakaliki – THE member representing Ezza North /Ishielu federal Constituency at the House of Representatives, Hon. Anayo Nwonu Monday expressed optimism that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) would produce the next speaker of the Green Chambers.
Mr Nwonu who addressed journalists during the last rerun of the state Assembly election in his constituency explained that PDP being minority in the 9th Assembly will not affect legislative processes .
He however was optimistic that the party will regain it’s lost seats in the National Assembly.
He said, “National politics and legislative politics are quite different, being a second term law maker, that we reduced in number will not really affect any legislative processes in the green chambers. For now we are already shopping for who will become the next speaker and I know Peoples Democratic Party PDP is the main people to decide who will be the speaker of the 9th Assembly .
“In fact let me tell you before the quarter of the year as we are being sworn in , PDP will definitely gain back their number”.
According to him, “what PDP is saying is to council the Presidential election,they are not saying that the whole elections should be counciled, the governors are congratulating INEC where they did well but blame them where they didn’t do well.
“Everyone in Nigeria know that the presidential elections was a completely rigged election. But I pray PDP will go to court and take their mandate back” he said.
“My people are not agreive,the point is that Ezza north people understand the politic of the day so they are always political conscious, what makes it look as if there is always a problem or fight in my place is the case of outsiders trying to throw stone on a class house.
“But as a lawmaker we are trying to stop that, what happened in the last elections will not repeat itself in Izzi north, in fact in the entire constituencies.”
