Oluwole Oke, a member of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) from Osun state, has withdrawn from the race to become the Minority Leader of the House of Representatives.

This comes as the four minority caucus leadership positions have reportedly been shared among the regions, with the Northern region taking the Deputy Minority Leader and Minority Whip slots, while the South takes the Minority Leader and Deputy Minority Whip slots.

The opposition parties have reportedly shared these leadership positions across regional, zonal, and party lines.

Despite being a frontrunner for the position from the South-West, Oke has decided to withdraw from his aspiration to become the minority leader.

The strongest contenders for the position now seem to be Unyime Idem from Akwa Ibom State (PDP) and Kingsley Chinda from Rivers State (PDP).

“We have already given the Labour Party one slot, the NNPP also got a slot, while the PDP has two. Out of the two taken by the PDP, there is one in the North and the other in the South. The agreement is this: two for the South and two for the North. Let the North go and decide where their two will come from, while the South decides on zonal sharing”, a lawmaker told the Punch.

“The North-West will present an NNPP candidate for the Deputy Minority Leader, while the North-East has adopted Ali Isa of the PDP. The Minority Leader and Deputy Minority Whip will come from the South. The Deputy Whip will by default go to the South-East because that is the base of the LP. Either the South-South or the South-West will produce the Minority Leader.”
