Speaker: Gbajabiamila sensed danger during his last meeting with lawmakers in Abuja- Source reveals

According to a news that was published by the Vanguard Newspaper online this morning, it was reported that a source, who was in attendance at the meeting that was called by the outgoing Speaker of the House of Representatives, with the lawmakers-elect said that, Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila, was not happy, after seeing the number of the lawmakers in attendance at the meeting.

The source, said, "Gbajabiamila sensed danger during his last meeting with lawmakers in Abuja and as an experienced politician, he should know that his preferred candidate won’t fly."

When he was asked, if he was going to support Hon. Tajudeen Abass, the source, who also won his election on the platform of the Labour Party, said that, he was at the meeting, like some of his friends, who got an invitation that Femi Gbajabiamila, was going to address both the returning members and the new members, only to see that it was a forum to sell the candidacy of Hon. Tajudeen Abass.

He said, some of his colleagues, understood the reason for the meeting, but, he (source) was innocent, like few of his friends that he interacted with in the hall, did not get the notion behind the invitation until they got there and they decided to sit and listen to whatever they had to say. He said he was personally disappointed, after seeing just a few members in attendance because, he had thought they got all the votes since it was their party that selected this man for the position of the Speaker.

He said, “But since their members cannot honour their party, and most of them stayed off, is it those of us from the minorities that would support All Progressives Congress ? Even though we are more than them in number, we would not be used to project mediocrity or support the composition of a rubber-stamp Assembly."
