An Abuja Court Monday Grants Peoples Democratic Party, PDP Leave For Motion To Vacate Speaker Tambuwal’s Seat.
A federal high court in Abuja has granted leave to the ruling PDP to file a motion for an order of mandamus compelling Aminu Tambuwal, speaker of the federal house of representatives to declare his seat vacant.
The Speaker of House of Representatives, Aminu Tambuwal, had formally defected from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Tambuwal announced his defection shortly after the House Leader, Mulikat Akande-Adeola (PDP-Oyo), moved a motion for the house to adjourn sitting till Dec. 3.
“In pursuit of the provisions of the 1999 Constitution and in view of the political developments in my state, I wish to formally inform you of my membership of the APC,” Tambuwal said. “This is in continuation of the great sacrifice and also the need to ensure development of constitutional democracy.’’
