Abiola Ajimobi, Oyo State Governor has urged the nine members of the House Representatives elected under the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to support Femi Gbajabiamila, majority leader, for the speakership position.
The Governor conveyed this in a statement issued on Monday Akeem Adeyemi, “for Oyo APC Reps Caucus”, through Gbajabiamila’s campaign office.
Adeyemi, who is also the APC South-West Coordinator of Gbajabiamila Speakership Campaign Council, appreciated the governor for providing “a sound leadership and positive direction for the party.”
The lawmaker said he promised Ajimobi “their full cooperation after each member had spoken in acceptance of the governor’s endorsement of the House Leader, Femi Gbajabiamila.”
The statement added, “Consequently, APC members-elect from Oyo State pledged unflinching loyalty to the party and promised to abide by the party’s decision on the choice of Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila as the Speaker of the 9th Assembly.”
