Ajimobi urges Oyo reps to back Gbajabiamila

The governor of Oyo state, Senator Abiola Ajimobi, has urged the nine members of the House of Representatives elected on the platform of the All Progressives Congress from the state to back the chosen candidate of the party for the speakership of the chamber.

Senator Ajimobi specifically urged the lawmakers to support the aspiration of the majority leader, Femi Gbajabiamila, as the next speaker of the house in the 9th National assembly.

A statement issued by a lawmaker, Mr Akeem Adeyemi, “for Oyo APC reps caucus,” through Gbajabiamila’s campaign office, quoted the governor giving the advice at a meeting held with reps-elect in his private residence in Oluyole estate, Ibadan.

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 statement said the lawmaker promised Ajimobi their full cooperation after each member had spoken in acceptance of the governor’s endorsement of the house leader, Femi Gbajabiamila.
