The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Lagos State has initiated the process of declaring vacant, seats of six of its members who defected to the All Progressives Congress, APC, in the Lagos State House of Assembly.
The party also expressed its support for the Senator Ahmed Makarfi-led National Caretaker Committee, at its General Assembly meeting held Thursday in Lagos.
State publicity secretary, Taofik Gani, said: “We are doing our homework and we are going to make our formal application to the necessary authorities for their seats to be declared vacant.
“We want them to come and test their popularity in their various constituencies.
“If truly they are popular, they should vacate their seats and not even contest their seats that will be declared vacant in court but come out to come and test their popularity in an election.”
He, however, affirmed the party’s unalloyed support for the Makarfi-led caretaker committee noting that “in Lagos State we are one.”
“There is no faction in Lagos State and we are all working as one as the local government election is coming up”, he added.
In his remarks, state chairman, Moshood Salvador, said: “The entire party structures in the state including our leader, Chief Bode George are solidly behind Ahmed Makarfi, who was appointed as caretaker chairman of the party in Port Harcourt last year.”
