The All Progressives Congress (APC) choice candidate for the position of the Speaker of the 9th Assembly Femi Gbajabiamila, got a boost over the weekend when the party’s members-elect from Oyo State pledged their loyalty to him.

The nine APC members-elect who were hosted by the Governor of Oyo State, Sen. Abiola Ajimobi, in his Ibadan residence on Sunday, where advised by the out going governor to follow the decision reached by the leadership of the Party in determining the leadership of the 9th Assembly and to support Gbajabiamila’s aspiration as the next Speaker of the Federal House of Representatives.

In a statement by the APC Southwest Coordinator of Gbajabiamila Speakership Campaign Council, Akeem Adeyemi, the members-elect assured the governor of their loyalty and determination to ensure that the House Leader succeed as the Speaker of the next Assembly.

The statement reads in part: “The nine members-elect appreciated the Governor for providing a sound leadership and positive direction for the party, and; however, promised the Governor their full cooperation, after each member had spoken in acceptance of the Governor’s endorsement of the House Leader, Femi Gbajabiamila.”
