According to a news that was published by the Vanguard Newspaper online yesterday evening, it was reported that a source in the House of Representatives, while speaking with Vanguard's correspondent, has revealed the names of the five people who are battling to become to the Speaker of the House in the 10th House.
It was reported that, this is one of the issues, which the president-elect of the country, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, would be discussing with some APC members in Abuja today.
More information made it known that, according to this source, five ranking members of the House of Representatives, have already shown interest, as he stressed that there was a need to provide an acceptable zoning direction, that will be sensitive to the religious affinity of the incoming administration in that Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, and the Vice President-Elect, Senator Kashim Shetima, are of the Islamic faith.
However, five lawmakers are jostling for the position of the Speaker, without recourse to either religious sentiment or geopolitical zones, since the party has not agreed yet on the direction the position would go to.
The source said, "Amongst the lot are Hon. Aliyu Betara representing Biu/Kwaya Federal Constituency of Borno State; Aminu Sani Jaji, a former chairman of the House of Representatives' Committee on National Security and intelligence in the 8th Assembly who has been re-elected to represent Kaura Namoda/Birnin Magaji Federal Constituency of Zamfara state. The current Deputy Speaker, Hon. Idris Wase from Plateau State, the current spokesman of the House, Hon. Ben Kalu and the majority leader of the 9th House, Hon. Ado Doguwa."
