Following his Sunday declaration of interest to run for office of the speaker in the ninth assembly, current Majority Leader of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, may be running the battle of his live as other House members including Niger State law maker and Abia State born Nkiru Onyejeocha who is said to be currently working underground to shock speculators.
Already, strong undercurrents are underway at the Red Chambers as the anointed candidate for Senate President; Ahmed Lawan is facing stiff opposition from the Borno Senator, Alli Ndume who has vowed to take the seat ‘by force as the kingdom suffereth violence’.
Back to the Green Chambers; The Abia Amazon had hinged her strength on her legislative maturity, leadership intelligence, and gender influences and mainly regional balance of power in the Nigerian contest after all.
Just like Nkiru, the Lagos lawmaker who represents Surulere II federal constituency will be returning to the house for a fifth term.
The scheming for NASS leadership is still ongoing even as the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) leadership, who currently has clear majority on both chambers, is expected to announce the zoning for the House of Representatives on Tuesday.
