I regret backing Tambuwal for Speaker: Gbajabiamila
Femi Gbajabiamila, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, expressed regret for organizing a forum that supported Aminu Tambuwal’s election as Speaker of the House in the 7th National Assembly.
As of right now, Tambuwal is the departing two-term governor of Sokoto State.
Gbajabiamila said, remembering previous attempts by speakership candidates to oppose selected candidates of their respective parties, “I regret it.
On Wednesday evening in Abuja, the Speaker addressed the Joint Task – 10th Assembly, a grouping of APC and opposition party representatives in the upcoming 10th National Assembly.
Tajudeen Abbas and Benjamin Kalu, the APC’s chosen candidates for Speaker and Deputy Speaker of the 10th House, respectively, had been adopted by the coalition.
The APC candidate for Senate president, senator Godswill Akpabio, entered the room with the Speaker before Gbajabiamila spoke, made a quick comment, and then left.
As of the time this report was filed, the meeting was still going on at the Transcorp Hilton in Abuja.
