The Majority Leader of the House of Representatives, Hon. Alhassan Ado-Dogwua, has stated that he has paid his dues and that it is time to reward his stewardship in his bid to become the Speaker of the Tenth House of Representatives.
On Wednesday in Abuja, Doguwa declared his intention to run for speaker of the 10th House of Representatives.
“I have paid my dues; it is time to reward my stewardship to both the legislature and the nation,” the lawmaker said. I am the longest-serving member from the Northwest Zone in the House, and with the support of my colleagues, I am the leader of the Northwest and the APC caucus in the House.”
He promised to be the speaker who would see the “Renewed Hope 2023-Action Plan for a Better Nigeria” anchored by President-elect Bola Tinubu through to completion.

The lawmaker stated that he would go to any length to secure the House’s support for the implementation of the administration’s laudable programs and policies.
In his mission statement, he stated that he would strengthen the role of parliaments toward effective representation while also restoring public trust and participation in governance.
This, he claims, is accomplished by facilitating, coordinating, monitoring, and evaluating strategies for public participation in governance and government business.
Doguwa stated that he would ensure that the House conducts its business in a transparent and accountable manner, with each member held responsible and accountable by the people he represents.
“If elected speaker,” he says, “we will ensure cohesion and harmonious working relationships among the three branches of government.”
“I am uniquely positioned to unite and stabilize the House, while also opening the door for all actors to play vital and critical roles in stabilizing the polity.”
