The Governor of Oyo State, Senator Abiola Ajimobi, has urged the members of the House of Representatives of the All Progressive Party from the state to back the chosen candidate of the party for the speakership of the chamber.
Ajimobi precisely urged the lawmakers to support the Femi Gbajabiamila, as the next Speaker of the House in the 9th National Assembly.
In a statement issued by a lawmaker, Mr. Akeem Adeyemi, on Monday, “for Oyo APC Reps Caucus,” through Gbajabiamila’s campaign office, quoted the governor giving the advice at a meeting held on Sunday with Reps-elect in his private residence in Oluyole Estate, Ibadan.”
Adeyemi, who is the APC South-West Coordinator of Gbajabiamila Speakership Campaign Council, appreciated the governor for providing “a sound leadership and positive direction for the party.”
Adeyemi said he promised “their full cooperation after each member had spoken in acceptance of the governor’s endorsement of the House Leader, Femi Gbajabiamila.”
The statement also said: “Consequently, APC members-elect from Oyo State pledged unflinching loyalty to the party and promised to abide by the party’s decision on the choice of Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila as the Speaker of the 9th Assembly.”
