The Senator representing Ekiti North Senatorial District, Senator Duro Faseyi, has hinted that members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the two chambers of the National Assembly will use their numerical strength to defend the nation’s Constitution.

The legislator also accused the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, of nursing sinister plans against the Nigerian masses following its alleged unrepentant stand to impose leadership on the National Assembly.

Senator Faseyi, in a release made available to newsmen in Ado Ekiti, said the insistence of few APC chieftains to control both the lower and upper Chambers at all cost is becoming suspicious.

He said: “The latest development in our country calls for great concern because during the 16 years of the PDP in power, we did not witness this kind of scenario.

“What we have in Nigeria today is dictatorship but the PDP members at the National Assembly will not fold their arms and watch, but would rather continue to fight to promote the rights of every Nigerian.”

“With our good number at both chambers, we will continue to uphold the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and also prevent any form of imposition as a result of the selfish interests of few individuals, at the detriment of the electorate.”

The Senator expressed regrets that the electorate fell victims to the propaganda and deceits of the APC, that promised them better performance as against the PDP.

“In the sixteen years of PDP in power in Nigeria, there was no time this kind of political turbulence and uproar at both chambers occurred except when the APC wanted to seize power in the House of Representatives through the former speaker, Aminu Tambuwal,” he said.

The two term former member of the House of Representatives assured the nation that no individual or group of people would be allowed to hijack the current National Assembly.

He said what the average patriotic Nigerian should be more concerned about now are good laws to promote unity, progress, and economic development of the nation for the benefit of this and future generations.
