Why Tinubu Endorsed Me For 10th Speakership – Abbas Reveals
Meanwhile, the lawmaker representing Zaria Federal Constituency (APC – Kaduna State), Tajudeen Abbas, has asserted why President-elect, Bola Tinubu, endorsed his candidature for the Speakership of the 10th House of Representatives.
Speaking during an interview on Sunday, Abbas, who insisted that the North-West geopolitical zone is the rightful place to produce the Speaker, said Tinubu may have endorsed him after he was impressed with his legislative disposition and credentials.
He also said the President-elect may have considered his contribution to the National Assembly to have given him an approving nod for the 10th Speakership position.
Abbas, who was featured on the Channels Television programme said, reiterated that his endorsement by Tinubu is not wrong and will be ratified by the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party.
“I visited the president-elect like other contestants to present myself and to inform him of my aspiration to become the Speaker of the 10th Assembly,” Abbas said, asserting that Tinubu was very happy with his candidature and that he assured him if the position was zoned to the North West, he would do his best to ensure that justice was done to all contestants.
Responding to the inquisitive of the journalists on the qualities Tinubu saw in him to offer him prayers and support, Abbas said, “I want to believe he (Tinubu) is impressed with my legislative disposition, credentials, places I have worked, and my contribution in the National Assembly.”
He, however, confirmed that the party has yet to announce a formal position on the zoning of the National Assembly leadership.
