Group Backs Lawan, Gbajabiamila For Senate President, Speaker



A Pro Buhari’s group, Buhari/Osibanjo Initiative for Demonstrating Change in Nigeria has called on elected members of the National Assembly to support the decision of the ruling All Progressives Congress APC to elect Senator Ahmed Lawan and Femi Gbajabiamila as Senate President and Speaker of the Federal House Representives of the National Assembly respectively.

In an interview with newsmen in Abakaliki, the National Coordinator of the group, Comrade Chinedu Ogah said that the contributions of Lawan as the Majority Leader of the  Senate for the unity of the country projected him as a core APC loyaltist and man of the people.

Comrade Ogah called on all members of APC to imbibe the Party’s discipline to sustain the Adams Oshiomhole’s legacies in the party.

He maintained that the choices of Lawan and Gbajabiamila are square pegs in a square holes for the legislative fortunes of the country.

The group urged the elected members of the APC in the two Chambers of the National Assembly to display total loyalty to the supremacy of the party, to avoid the repeat of the scenario of the 8th Assembly.

Ogah also called on the elected members of other political parties to put the interest of the country above Party politics and forge a common front that would promote cohesion and unity in the nation’s legislative arm.

He said: “Ahmed Lawan has displayed maturity as the true leader that will unite the national Assembly. He is a lover, intelligent, humble and believer in one Nigeria. We should elect him as the Senate President because he has displayed love that he does not put party interest above national interest”.

“We are also supporting Femi Gbajabiamila for the speakership of the House of Representatives because despite his lost for the position in the outgoing Assembly, he was never antagonistic to the leadership of the green chamber. He displayed love and loyalty in the service of this country”.

“The two candidates are God-fearing leaders who believe in the unity of Nigeria. We, the Initiative of Demonstrating Change in Nigeria strongly support the position of the National leadership of APC on the choices already adopted to avoid the aberration which led to the crises in the outgoing Assembly”, Ogah said.

The group further congratulated the President elect, Muhammadu Buhari, adding that the President would consolidate on his war against corruption and as well improve on the shortcomings of his first term.
