As the inauguration of the 10th House of the Speakership seat approaches, Honourable Sergius Ogun, a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), stated that he doesn't believe the opposition will have much influence in choosing the next speaker.
In an interview with Sunday Sun, he mentioned Abdulmumin Jubrin, a member of the opposition who previously worked as DG for the last two speakers, Dogara and Gbajabimiala.
Ogun stated that he saw an interview where Jubrin claimed to be Tinubu's son and may try to become speaker. However, Ogun believes that if Jubrin does become speaker, he will give a significant portion of the opposition's votes to the government in power.
Ogun's opinion suggests that while the opposition may not be able to produce a speaker, they may still play a significant role in who becomes the next speaker.
Jubrin's previous roles as DG for the last two speakers may give him an advantage in trying to become speaker, but his claim of being Tinubu's son and being a member of the opposition may not work in his favor. Ogun's insights provide an interesting perspective on the upcoming House of the Speakership seat inauguration.
