The meeting took place in Abuja on Thursday, and the aspirants present included Gbajabiamila’s deputy, Rep. Ahmed Idris Wase (North-Central); Rep. Makki Abubakar Yalleman (North-West); Rep. Adamu Yusuf Gagdi (North-Central), and Rep. Benjamin Kalu (South-East).

Others were Rep. Peter Akpatason (South-South); Rep. Muktar Aliyu Betara (North-East); Rep. Sada Soli Jibia (North-West); Rep. Tunji Olawuyi (South-West); Rep. Abbas Tajuddeen (North-West), and Rep. Aminu Sani Jaji (North-West).

The outcome of the meeting, which held behind closed-door, has not been stated, but it is believed that the meeting was aimed at achieving a middle ground and in order for the APC to present one formidable candidate for the Speakership election on the day of inauguration of the 10th National Assembly on Tuesday, June 13, 2023.

This is against the backdrop that opposition parties have threatened to present their own candidate for the Speakership position in the event the ruling party failed to present a popular candidate.

 

A Member-elect from the opposition New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) from Kano State, Abdulmumin Jibrin, disclosed opposition’s plan recently during a TV interview.
