Indications on Saturday, May 4, emerged that the All Progressives Congress will adopt Idris Wase (Plateau) as the deputy speaker of the 9th House of Representatives.
Abdulmumin Jibrin (Kano), who is the Director General (DG) of the Femi Gbajabiamila campaign council made this known on his twitter page.
Jibrin said any member of the APC caucus that fails to accept the party’s choice of Wase ultimately risk being sanctioned.
The tweet read: “MURUS!!! Mr speaker and Mr deputy speaker 9th Assembly. If you are an APC member and against the two, you are on collision course with the party. 2015 is NOT 2019 in so many ways. We are assuring our 360 colleagues, Femi and Wase will run an all-inclusive House. Hon A Jibrin DG”
