Gbajabiamila Says He Regrets Backing Tambuwal To Become Speaker

The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, has expressed regret over his support for a forum that championed the emergence of Aminu Tambuwal as Speaker of the House in the 7th National Assembly.

Tambuwal is now an outgoing two-term Governor of Sokoto State.

“I regret it,” Gbajabiamila stated while recalling the previous attempts by speakership aspirants to oppose the chosen candidates of their respective parties.

The Speaker made these remarks in Abuja on Wednesday night during a meeting of the Joint Task – 10th Assembly, a coalition of members-elect from the All Progressives Congress and opposition parties for the upcoming 10th National Assembly.

During the meeting, the coalition adopted Tajudeen Abbas and Benjamin Kalu as the anointed candidates of the APC for the positions of Speaker and Deputy Speaker, respectively, for the 10th House.

Before Gbajabiamila spoke, Senator Godswill Akpabio, the APC candidate for President of the Senate, accompanied the Speaker into the venue, delivered a brief remark, and then left.
