Wike backs Gbajabiamila and Wase as the next Speaker of House of Representatives

Wike backs Gbajabiamila and Wase as the next Speaker of House of Representatives 


Governor Wike has thrown his weight behind the south-west choice, to represent as the new speaker of the house of Representatives. The Governor who received the delegation yesterday in Port Harcourt, the state capital, said he would support Gbajabiamila because he had shown over the years to be able, capable and experienced enough to lead the next House.

The governor stressed that his support for Gbajabiamila and Wase was not based on party line nor ethnic considerations.

Wike said he was impressed by the efforts the duo made to consider him worthy enough to be consulted and visited for such a national issue.

“I don’t support you based on party lines; I support you based on capacity. When you get there, we must work as a people. Your party is just a vehicle to convey you to your political destination.

“Party line is the major reason Nigeria has not made any progress. It was the reason our Electoral Act was not assented to,” he said.

Wike advised Gbajabiamila to put Nigeria first when he becomes Speaker of the ninth House on June 10.

Gbajabiamila noted that though he and Wase possessed the requisite leadership skills and legislative experience to successfully pilot the affairs of the ninth House, there was a need for them to seek the support and blessing of the governor, whom he said they respected so much.
