Alhaji Ahmed Lawan,Chieftain of All Progressive Congress,APC, in Adamawa state said the office of the speaker,House of representative at the National Assembly under serious contention will be better manage under the leadership of Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila.
Lawal an organizing secretary of APC in Adamawa state said experience count in everything that one does,referring back the last power smart play of 2015 that brought up speaker Dogara,said the game was meant to favour Femi,but somehow played Against him.
“The speakership office of the green Chambers is not a small office,we are talking about the number four person in the leadership hierarchy of this country,you will agree with me that is beyond an ordinary member who is there for the first time.
“We need quite intelligent and hard-working people who will support President Muhammadu Buhari deliver on the mandate of the masses. Femi is one of the most articulated Lawmaker,one among few that have high number of laws,bills and motions in their names. I don’t think Nigerians should contemplate calling their elected members to vote for him.” Lawal said.
He made a passionate call, appealing to new and old-time lawmaker of the green Chambers to unite their votes for Femi because it will serve the entire interest of the nation.
He however said that is aware that the Member representing Toungo,Ganye,Jada and Mayobelwa federal constituency,Hon Abdulrazak Namdas is eyeing the officer of the speaker,but is advising him to keep the struggle for a next time.
According to him Namdas is another good material for the office of the speaker and is doing too well as the image maker of the house but want him to unite for Hon Femi as Sons of APC who believe in unity in the interest of the party.
Recall this weekend Gbajabiamila while discussing with some newly elected House of Representatives members in Transcorp Hilton Hotel, Abuja to have boasted that being a fifth timer, it will amount to an insult for him to go into contest with anyone, insisting that “by right, he should emerge Speaker unopposed.
