The All Progressives Congress (APC) has adopted the House Leader, Femi Gbajabiamila, as its candidate for the position of the Speaker of the House of Representatives in the 9th Assembly.
This position was reached after an intensive deliberation with the party’s House of Representatives members-elect at a dinner with President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday at the Banquet Hall of the Presidential Villa in Abuja.
The National Publicity Secretary of the APC, Lanre Issa-Onilu, also confirmed the party’s position to reporters.
He disclosed that the position of the deputy speaker has been zoned to the north-central region of the country.
The dinner also had in attendance the APC National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, and some other chieftains of the party.
Oshiomhole informed party members at the gathering that the APC was determined to ensure that it does not repeat what he described as mistakes made in the 8th Assembly, under a “hostile leadership”.
He asked that ninth Assembly not to entrust the leadership of critical committees to the opposition and suggested instead that new members-elect can be chairmen of such committees.
Adopting “a winner takes all position”, the party chairman urged the APC lawmakers not to share what belongs to the party with anyone, especially the opposition.
