Two term member of the House of Representatives, Hon. Olusegun Odebunmi, has warned his party, the All Progressives Congress, APC, against ignoring the chances of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
This is just as he advised APC to lobby PDP lawmakers instead of moving against them.
Bunvic, as Odebunmi is fondly called, said this in a interview with Sunday Punch.
OYO INSIGHT recalled that some APC aspirants for the position of the Speaker have faulted the ruling party’s national chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, for declaring that the PDP would not get any leadership position or chairmanship of a major committee in the coming 9th National Assembly.
Bunvic, who has just been re-elected for the third term, is one of the two speakership aspirants from the South-West.
Odebunmi said, “Many people outside don’t know how things work in the National Assembly. Every member has a role and a stake when we are talking of the leadership. We (APC) are lucky to be the majority but we will still move ahead to lobby our members (in the opposition) towards our direction, otherwise we cannot have a peaceful house.”
