The entire leadership of APC Lagos happily felicitates with our own Hon Femi Gbajabiamila on his resounding and landslide victory in Abuja today by emerging the 9th Speaker of the House Of Representatives.
In a release signed by the State Publicity Secretary, Mr Joe Igbokwe, the party said Gbajabiamila worked so hard with his colleagues, traversed the whole political landscape, visited all the State Capitals, deployed all the foot soldiers, engaged and consulted everybody that needed to be consulted to emerge victorious in the keenly contested election.
“Femi Gbajabiamila left no stone unturned in this struggle in breaking the barriers that had stood between him and that office for years now. In 2015, he narrowly missed the position to Bukola Saraki’s betrayal, treachery, political idiocy and non respect for party supremacy and rules of engagement. Femi recovered quickly from the setbacks of 2015 to break the vicious cycle today, June 11 2019.
Lagos APC salutes the courage of the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, His Excellency Muhammadu Buhari, National Leader Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the National Chairman Of APC Adams Oshiomhole, the Governors, Senators, Reps Members, and other countless number of Nigerians for encouraging and standing behind Femi in times of need.
We have no doubt in our mind that Hon Femi Gbajabiamila will bring to bear his almost 20 years experience in the business of law making to advance the cause of democracy in Nigeria. We do not have any shred of doubt that Femi Gbajabiamila has all it takes to drive the leadership of the House Of Representatives and Nigeria to the next level”.
