The majority leader of the federal house of representatives ado doguwa has highlighted reasons why he want to succeed the incumbent speaker of the house of representatives femi gbajabiamila.
The majority leader stated this during a formal declaration in abuja.
Doguwa who is representing Doguwa /Tudun Wada Federal Constituency of Kano State explained that he has paid his dues just like the present speaker of the house femi gbajabiamila to be entrusted with the task of overseeing proceedings of the lower legislative chamber.
The Kano lawmaker also vowed to lead a House that would promote good governance, transparency and accountability in legislative proceedings, besides ensuring that every Nigerian, irrespective of social class, or background, has a voice and is well represented.
“I plead with my colleagues from the zone to extend to me as a privilege not by right the same Gbajabiamila treatment because as the saying goes, ‘what is good for the goose is also good for the gander’.
“I have paid my dues. It is time to reward my stewardship to both the parliament and the nation. Kindly permit me to take you a little down memory lane. In 2011 to 2015, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had majority in the House and controlled the leadership in that dispensation, while Femi Gbajabiamila was nominated by the Southwest Caucus as their Minority Leader.
“From 2015 to 2019 when our party, APC, had majority in the House, it was only natural that the Minority Leader transits to Majority Leader position. If you will recall then, the moment this convention was proposed, I personally agreed to step down from the Majority Leader position, which I was earlier tipped for and settled for the Chief Whip position to give room for Gbajiabiamila to assume the position of Majority Leader.”
