Governor Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo State has urged the All Progressives Congress (APC) House of Representatives members-elect to back Majority Leader, Femi Gbajabiamila as the Speaker of the 9th Assembly.

Ajimobi, who hosted the nine APC members-elect in his Ibadan residence on Sunday, advised them to toe party line by following the decision reached by the leadership of the Party in determining the leadership of the 9th Assembly.

In a statement on Monday by Akeem Adeyemi, the APC Southwest Coordinator of Gbajabiamila Speakership Campaign Council, 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 nine members-elect appreciated the Governor for providing 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,” the statement reads in part.
