At Last, Femi Gbajabiamila is Majority Leader as APC Leaders, Speaker settle rift

The crises that had engulfed the House of Representatives since its inauguration seem to have finally come to an end as Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila has been announced at the Majority Leader of the 8th Assembly.

The announcement made on the floor by Speaker, Rt. Hon. Yakubu Dogara also announced Hon. Buba Jibrin as  Deputy House Leader, Hon. Alhassan Doguwa , Chief Whip and Hon. Pally Iriase Deputy Whip.

The new positions showed a compromise by the APC Leadership who had hitherto sent a list to the Speaker, that was roundly rejected. It is obvious that following a series of last minute meetings the warring factions eventually closed ranks and came to a compromise.

This new positions means that Hon. Mohammed Monguno who was nominated by the Party as Deputy House Leader loses out to Hon. Jibrin who was the Spokesperson of the Dogara Group. Many hope that with this truce, the House of Representatives can now settle down to its constitutional duties and help the new APC deliver on its campaign promises.
