Abuja - The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is plotting to unseat the Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Suleiman Yusuf Lasun, reports Peoples Daily.
The move follows the breach of agreement the party lawmakers in the House of Representatives had with their All Progressives Congress (APC) counterparts loyal to the new Speaker, Yakubu Dogara.

The agreement was that both camps will ensure that PDP’s Leo Ogor emerges the new Deputy Speaker in support for Dogara to become the Speaker.
The PDP caucus accused APC lawmakers loyal to Dogara of reneging on their promise by presenting Lasun instead of Ogor.
The PDP lawmakers are insisting on the agreement, pressuring the Dogara group to compel Lasun to step aside and pave the way for Ogor to step in as the Deputy Speaker.
