Honourable Member-Elect of House of Representatives for Darazo/Ganjuwa Federal Constituency, Honourable Mansur Manu Soro, on Monday in Bauchi declared that two-thirds members-elect of different political parties are in support of Femi/Wase project and anxiously await the inauguration date to cast their votes for them.
“You know the House Standing Order provides that election of Speaker and Deputy should take precedence over any other business on the day of the inauguration. I can confidently tell you that nearly two-thirds number of us are voting for Femi and Wase as Speaker and Deputy come June 11, 2019.
“By law, we need a minimum of just 181 to succeed but the bi-partisan approach the campaign has adopted, we comfortably have far more than that.
“Femi Gbajabiamila is a humble lawmaker that believes in constructive engagement and dialogue. You may be surprised to see him becoming the speaker unopposed because he is aggressively taking the campaign to the doorstep of only one aspirant still in the race. Quite a number of the aspirant has stepped down for him so far.”
