The National Working Committee (NWC)  of the Peoples Democratic Party
(PDP) after very extensive consultations with critical stakeholders
resolves to support Senator Ali Ndume and Hon. Umar Mohammed Bago for
Senate President and Speaker of House of Representatives respectively,

the polity.

All senators and members-elect on the platform of the PDP are to be
