House now united to work for Nigerians – Dogara

The speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, Thursday said the 8th House is now set to work for Nigerians after the 49-day crisis that rocked the House from inception.

Speaking at the end of the All Progressives Congress, APC Caucus meeting, which ended at about 12.15am, Thursday, Dogara declared that “there are no more factions in the House what we have today is a group of lawmakers loyal to the House leadership and our great party”.

“It is only in unity that we can positively contribute to the change we all worked for and move Nigeria forward towards our desired dream of a greater nation”.

On the issue of why the South East was not represented in the new leadership configuration, Dogara said”we are already working on that to see how the zone will be adequately compensated”.

No more factions in the House - Gbajabiamila

Also speaking almost in the same vein, the new Majority Leader of the 8th House, Rep Femi Gbajabiamila, APC, Surulere Federal Constituency, Lagos said:

“There are no longer factions in the House, whatever happened earlier is now behind us and we are ready to serve Nigerians to the best of our ability”.

On the marginalisation of the South East in the new leadership structure, Gbajabiamila said”it is not right to play the ethnicity or regional card for now but they will be adequately compensated”.

In his contribution, Rep Abiodun Faleke, APC, Ikeja Federal Constituency, Lagos, said”we are no longer fighting as you can see, we are now ready to work with other legislators and move our dear country forward”.

Rep Abdulmunin Jibrin, APC, Kano simply said”this meeting has healed all wounds there is nobody here that is nursing any anger or ill-feelings any longer”.
