Speakership: Ajimobi mobilises Oyo Reps for Gbajabiamila

The support for the candidacy of the House of Representatives Majority Leader, Femi Gbajabiamila as the Speaker of the 9th Assembly got a boost over the weekend when All Progressives Congress (APC) members-elect from Oyo State pledged their loyalty, with a promise to abide by the Party’s decision on the choice of the leadership position.

This followed the intervention of the Governor of Oyo State, Sen. Abiola Ajimobi, who hosted the nine APC members-elect in his Ibadan residence on Sunday, where he advised them to toe party line by following the decision reached by the leadership of the Party in determining the leadership of the 9th Assembly and to support Gbajabiamila’s aspiration as the next Speaker of the Federal House of Representatives.

In a statement on Monday by Akeem Adeyemi, the APC Southwest Coordinator of Gbajabiamila Speakership Campaign Council, the members-elect assured the governor of their loyalty and determination to ensure that the House Leader succeed as the Speaker of the next Assembly.

The statement reads in part: “The nine members-elect appreciated the Governor for providing a sound leadership and positive direction for the party, and; however, promised the Governor their full cooperation, after each member had spoken in acceptance of the Governor’s endorsement of the House Leader, Femi Gbajabiamila.”
