S’East group backs Gbajabiamila for Reps Speakership role

SPEAKERSHIP: CUPP moves against Gbajabiamila, approaches Abuja Court

More backing has come the way of Femi Gbajabiamila of the All Progressive Congress (APC) in his bid to emerge Speaker of the House of Representatives.

The current Leader of the House has received the backing of the South East Consultative Initiative, (SECI), which has endorsed his candidature to become the next Speaker of the House of Representatives.

The group in a statement signed by its National President, Comrade Nnaji Paschal and Secretary, Dr Offia Sunday, on Saturday, said Gbajabiamila has all it takes to oversee a viable and responsive House of Representatives for Nigeria.

SECI which revealed its backing for Gbajabiamila during the end of its General Meeting in Abakaliki, the Ebonyi state capital, also denied backing the Speakership ambition of Mr Emeka Nwajiuba.

Describing Gbajabiamila’s qualities the group said; “The humane and selfless way he took his failed bid for the plum job in 2015 is still fresh in our minds. He humbled himself to take the House Leader position and worked harmoniously with Speaker Yakubu Dogara and by so doing reunited the House”.

“We feel that having made such sacrifice for the interest of peace and development of the House and the country at large, it is now time for his colleagues to reward him for his sacrifices by electing him to lead them”.
