Emeka Ihedioha Runs Into Trouble With PDP For Hosting Tambuwal

DEPUTY Speaker, House of Representatives, Honourable Emeka Ihedioha, appears to have landed in trouble, for hosting the Speaker, Honourable Aminu Tambuwal, to a reception, after the latter’s defection to opposition All Progressives Congress (APC).
Sources in the National Assembly  has it that President Goodluck Jonathan and leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) were angry with the Deputy Speaker for hosting Tambuwal to a warm reception, few hours after the Speaker defected from Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to APC.
But the spokesman of Ihedioha, Oke Epia, on Thursday, said the allegation that Ihedioha hosted Tambuwal was not true.
He stated that the duo could meet as presiding officers of the House and not as party members.
“Are they saying the deputy speaker is no longer a chieftain of the PDP? I can tell you that his loyalty is unshaken. He remains committed to PDP. These are political times and all sort of things could be raised by political opponents,” he said.
Sources, however, said the meeting between Tambuwal and Ihedioha took place at the Deputy Speaker’s guest house in Pope John Paul Street, off Gana Street, Maitama, Abuja.
“Ihedioha has been asked to explain whose master he has elected to serve; because we cannot understand why he chose to host Tambuwal to a warm reception, a few hours after he defected from our party to APC.
“Is the deputy speaker with us or he is planning to move to APC with his boss? The PDP deserves an answer from him,” a source said.
The source further said at this “critical moment of political decision,” President Goodluck Jonathan wanted to be very clear on whose side Ihedioha belonged.
