Former aviation minister, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, has endorsed the aspiration of Honourable Femi Gbajabiamila to be the next Speaker of the House of Representatives.
Fani-Kayode, a Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain, described Gbajabiamila as “a profoundly good man.”
He stated that the All Progressives Congress (APC) lawmaker representing Surulere federal constituency 1 in Lagos, “will make a great Speaker of the Federal House of Representatives.”
Fani-Kayode wrote on Twitter: “I have known Femi Gbajabiamila for 40 years and I can assure you that he will make a great Speaker of the Federal House of Representatives.
“We may disagree politically but I must confess that he is a profoundly good man representing a great constituency. I wish him well.”
Meanwhile, despite the endorsement of Gbajabiamila by the APC national leadership, the APC lawmaker is being challenged by seven contenders for the position.
They are House spokesman Abdulrazak Namdas (APC, Adamawa), Mukhtar Aliyu Betara (APC, Borno), Idris Wase (APC, Plateau), Umar Bago (APC, Niger), Nkeiruka Onyejeocha (APC, Abia), John Okafor (APC, Imo), Babangida Ibrahim (APC, Katsina) and Mohammed Kazaure (APC, Jigawa).
