FEMI GBAJABIAMILA WINS THE FIGHT

Finally, The House of Representatives has named Femi Gbajabiamila the majority leader, in a move likely to help calm a house frayed for weeks by leadership tussle.

Mr. Gbajabiamila emerged the All Progressives Congress caucus leader hours after the House leaders met with the leadership of the ruling APC in Abuja.

The meeting was at the behest of President Muhammadu Buhari.

The house has been racked by leadership tussle since its inauguration June 9.

Mr. Gbajabiamila, a former minority leader, was pushed for the speakership slot, but narrowly lost to Yakubu Dogara.

Mr. Dogara’s rejection of the party’s demand that Mr. Gbajabiamila be given the majority leader position, split the house into two factions, each insisting on its term for resolving the conflict.

Also, Pally Iraise was named deputy leader, Ado Doguwa was named chief whip and Buba Jibrin deputy chief whip.

Hopefully, The House can work in unity and concentrate on the issues of Nigeria.
