The former lawmaker representing Kaduna central, Senator Shehu Sani has issued a warning to both the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP and the Labour Party in the National Assembly.
He said if the ruling All Progressices Congress, APC get the position of the Minority Leader, the parties are dead.
Sani stated this while speaking in an interview with Arise Television on Monday.
He stated, “The signs that are coming is that they (APC) want to have a Minority Leader that will be a stooge of the ruling party, then is done, it will be the death of the opposition (PDP) in the National Assembly.
“Why you hear more of the Labour Party today doing the opposition is that PDP has mortgaged their responsibility of the main opposition to Labour Party.
“Nobody is saying you should go to the National Assembly and fight the executive, but we know fully well that the dignity of the National Assembly is centered in its independence. The will be no independence if APC gets everything.
“The Minority Leader in a parliamentary system is like the alternative government. But, if we have a Minority Leader that will play the role of the opposition, it will be better for the country,” he said.
