The meeting, according to a member of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), Hon. Abdulmumin Jibrin, who appeared on Channels Television’s program, Politics Today, on Wednesday, stated that the essence of the meeting of the opposition federal lawmakers was to pull their strength together so as to be relevant in law making.
Also a ranking lawmaker, Hon. Fred Agbedi from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), said the meeting was held to enable the lawmakers-elect network, interact and familiarise before their inauguration.
Agbedi said that the minority caucuses have the highest number of elected lawmakers in the 10th assembly, giving them greater strength to deepen opposition politics and democracy.

On her part, Hon. Beni Lar, another ranking member, said the minority caucuses can achieve a “common goal” if they are united.
“All of us put together are now the majority and a greater majority. This is something that many parliaments around the world seek to achieve but cannot achieve. I believe that with our numbers, strength and with our doggedness, we can achieve our common goal and purpose,” she said.
