I regret supporting Tambuwal for speaker— Gbajabiamila


The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, has stated that he regrets his support for Aminu Tambuwal’s election as Speaker of the House in the 7th National Assembly.

Gbajabiamila stated this in Abuja on Wednesday night during a meeting of the Joint Task – 10th Assembly, a coalition of APC and opposition party members-elect for the incoming 10th National Assembly.

“I regret it,” Gbajabiamila stated while recalling the previous attempts by speakership aspirants to oppose the chosen candidates of their respective parties.

During the meeting, the coalition adopted Tajudeen Abbas and Benjamin Kalu as the anointed candidates of the APC for the positions of Speaker and Deputy Speaker, respectively, for the 10th House.

Tambuwal is now an outgoing two-term Governor of Sokoto State.
