The member representing Adavi/Okehi federal constituency in the House of Representatives, Hon Joseph Asuku Bello, has commended the speaker of the House, Femi Gbajabiamila, on his recent successful diplomatic shuttle to Ghana.
Gbajabiamila had visited Ghana to mediate in the trade dispute between Ghanaian and Nigerian dealers, at the same time engaged with the government Ghana to reach an amicable settlement.
Asuku Bello who described the speakers initiative as a master stroke that could only be conceived and achieved by a forward-looking leader, said the action has brought honour to the 9th National Assembly.
According to a statement personally signed by him, the lawmaker said “on behalf of the people of Adavi/Okehi Federal Constituency, I personally appreciate the speakers initiative and effort which in my humble estimation, have brought credit, honour, and gains to our government and people, especially the 9th House of Representatives and National Assembly.”
Asuku Bello in the statement noted that Gbajabiamila had promptly intervened in several strategic national issues, ranging from labour disputes, executive and legislative relations, Covid-19 induced budget adjustment and palliatives amongst others, that have saved the nation from several losses and embarrassment.
These, according to him stands Gbajabiamila out as a trusted patriot, who would always deploy his energy to benefit the government and the people of Nigeria.
He, however, called for more support for the speaker, especially from members of the National Assembly.
“I pray that God grants Rt. Hon. Gbajabiamila more wisdom, good health, and resources, as he continues his run of rendering quality service and leadership to the 9th National Assembly especially the House of Representatives, all to the benefit of the entire government and people of Nigeria.”
