The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) says it will establish a “shadow cabinet” ahead of the 2019 general election.

The cabinet, according to the party, is “to pilot PDP’s road map towards national economic recovery and good governance.”

In a statement on Friday, Kola Ologbondiyan, PDP spokesman, said this was part of the resolutions reached during the party’s national executive council (NEC) emergency meeting which held in Abuja on Thursday.

Ologbondiyan listed other resolutions reached at the meeting to include “That the PDP doors remain widely open to all Nigerians, groups and like-minded political parties to foster a strong rallying point for the determined quest by Nigerians to rescue the nation from the misrule of the APC and enthrone good governance in our country.

“That the PDP leads a strong conversation and discussion towards a formal coalition of democratic forces to guarantee Nigerians the much desired all-inclusive platform ahead of 2019 general elections.

“That the PDP deploys the instrument of its democratic structures at all levels across the country to legitimately and urgently rally all Nigerians to vote out the APC and return the nation to the path of national cohesion, stability and prosperity for the good of all.”

The party also demanded a system-wide inquest, “particularly on the compromised security at the national assembly and held that the matter be expeditiously dealt with”.

Suspected thugs had carted away the mace from the senate on Wednesday. The instrument, which is the symbol of authority of the senate, was later recovered.

“The PDP NEC urges all Nigerians to, in unison, condemn the assault on the national assembly, particularly the senate, leading to the seizure of the mace,” the statement added.

“The NEC declares that the invasion is a direct attack on the sovereignty of Nigeria and her integrity as a democraticnation.

“The NEC calls for immediate prosecution of senator Ovie Omo-Agege and all those involved in this treasonable act.”
