We have had discussion and we have all agreed to accept peace, so you will not see any more disagreements as in the past. Peace has returned to our party.

“Both the Senate Presi­dent, the Speaker, Senator Ahmed Lawan and Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila will work together for the unity of the National Assembly and the progress of our par­ty. By next week, we will give you the details of this our peace arrangement but so far, so good”.

A Rep mem­ber, who was at the meet­ing, claimed that it was agreed that Gbajabiamila, who was the APC consensus candidate for the position of Speaker, will be named the Major­ity Leader.

“Some concessions were made by the parties. What is certain as regards the House is that Gbajabiamila will be the Majority Leader”, he said.
