''Your hard work and dedication to duties have paid off.
''I am confident in your abilities to discharge any mandate and overcome any challenges because your patriotism to the Nigerian project is unparalleled."

Meanwhile, in a couple of days, Hon Gbajabiamila will end his reign at the lower chambers as the Speaker of the House of Representatives, relinquishing his seat as the lawmaker representing Surulere federal constituency where he was elected for a record 6th term.

Senator Akume, on the other hand, was the immediate past Minister of Special Duties under the administration of ex-President Muhammadu Buhari.

Prior to his appointment by the administration of ex-President Buhari, he was a two-term governor of Benue State between 1999 to 2007 and was a serving Senator representing Benue Northwest between 2007 to 2019.
