Regards to the leadership of the ninth House of Representatives race, Hon. Abdulmumuni Jibrin, the leader of Gbajabiamila/Wase campaign team, has vowed that the team will succeed in its fight against the only remaining contender of Gbajabiamila in the speakership race.
Jibrin speaking with lawmakers during an interactive session late Sunday night, across party lines towards the speakership bid, said all the contenders of the position with his candidate have stepped down except one person who is being persuaded to join the rest before the Election Day.
He said “all those contesting against Gbajabiamila have stepped down except one which we are ready to negotiate with and any other person.
“Hon Abdulrazaq Namdas, Ado Doguwa, Segun Odebunmi, Buba Yaku u Aliyu Batera, Nkeiruika Onyejeocha have all stepped down for Gbajabiamila. “The South East caucus led by Hon Pat Asadu has led lawmakers to sign for Gbajabiamila and as you are aware this is unlike 2015 as we have learnt from our previous mistake.
Meanwhile, Gbajabiamila, in his speech at the event said he will ensure digital legislation during his tenure if he eventually wins the race.
“The era where Order Paper is shared to lawmakers is over what I will do is to ensure we go e-parliament.
“This Assembly will not be like any other Assembly and I want to thank the president for endorsing me as we will not disappoint him.”
Meanwhile, Hon Nkeiruika Onyejeocha, who was not present at the meeting, was earlier announced to have stepped down for Gbajabiamila.
