The adoption of Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila as the Speaker candidate by the Adams Oshiomhole led APC is brewing fresh crisis in the party over the zoning of the speakership of the House of Representatives to the South West geopolitical zone of the country, and the purported announcement Femi Gbajabiamila as the adopted candidate of the party for the position.

Addressing newsmen in Abuja at the National Assembly today – barely 24 hours after the APC national leadership ruled on the matter – the North Central Caucus of the party in the House of Representatives rejected the arrangement, describing it as unfair and undemocratic which will not stand the test of the time.

According the caucus, “We are therefore appealing to the party to have a rethink and rezone the Speakership to the North Central for justice and fair play.”

Leader of the caucus, Hon. John Dyegh, who addressed the press, flanked by other members, announced his intention to vie for the position and rolled out a seven-point agenda to pursue if elected the Speaker.

Another very strong contender for the position is Hon. Muhammed Umaru Bago, a member representing the good people of Chanchaga Federal Constituency of Niger State, a member whose contributions cannot be over-mentioned, well read and very intelligent.

Hon. Muhammed Bago as Speaker of the 9th House of Representatives will help demystify the position of the number 4 person in the country, with the level of quality the office deserves.
