A few minutes Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila was appointed the Leader of the House of Representatives, he paid a visit to the National Secretariat of the All Progressives Congress in Abuja.
A source close to the National Chairman’s office, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, said Gbajabiamila was at the secretariat to thank the APC boss.
Odigie-Oyegun had pushed for Gbajabiamila’s emergence as House Leader in a letter he wrote to the Speaker, Hon. Yakubu Dogara, after he lost the Speakership of the House.
Reacting to the emergence of the House Leader and how to solve the Senate crisis, Odigie-Oyegun stated that the Senate crisis would be approached differently.
On the emergence of Gbajabiamila as leader, he said: “I want to commend the Speaker and his team for their sense of patriotism. It is my hope and expectation that the wounds will now be totally healed that the APC family will now reunite fully as one.
“I have already offered our regrets. This is part of growing, we are new to government and we are democratic and above all, progressive movement. We are in the process of welding all the various tendencies into one and today (yesterday) we have scored one major victory and I can assure the country that the party has begun the process of healing all the wounds and becoming one strong force. We are moving from being a movement into a one strong political party that will back the President for the good of the entire country,” he said.
