The Peoples Democratic Party caucus in the House of Representatives has said the party must regain presidency it lost in 2015 to the All Progressives Congress.

The leader of the minority caucus in the House, Chinda Kingsley, said this while briefing journalists after the third meeting of the PDP lawmakers in Abuja, on Tuesday.

“We are going back, as we resume the session to commence a strong, virile and purpose-driven opposition to give the people a voice in the parliament,” the caucus said.

The lawmakers issued a three-month ultimatum to the Federal Government to normalise the security situation in the country.

According to them, the government must immediately take steps to ensure that the security situation in the country is normalised.

“We x-rayed the security situation in our country and we resolved that we can no longer take this situation where Nigeria is today almost tagged as ‘one life, one minute silence.’ After three-months, the caucus will take further steps to sensitise and mobilise Nigerians to take their security into their hands,” the lawmakers stated.

He said the caucus also agreed to call on party caucuses, board of trustees, national executive committee and the national working committee of the party to embark on reconciliatory measures.

This, according to him, is with a view to resolving pending litigation that has hindered the party’s quest for a substantive national chairman.

He called on leaders of the PDP to continue to demonstrate unconditional loyalty to the party and ensure that it’s placed where she enjoyed the position of the largest political party in Africa.

He said that PDP members in the House of Reps were united, indivisible, committed and out to perform their duties as the watchdog on behalf of Nigerians.
