Plot To Remove Gbajabiamila As Majority Leader Unfounded – Reps’ Chief Whip


Amid speculations that the House of Representatives Majority Leader, Femi Gbajabiamila is going to be removed from the position by lawmakers loyal to the Speaker, Hon. Yakubu Dogara, the Chief Whip, Ado Doguwa, has denied the plot, saying the leadership of the House is united.

The denial also came on the heels of assurances by the House leader that there is no problem between him and the Speaker.

Addressing reporters on the issue yesterday, Mr. Gbajabiamila said: “The Speaker and I have no issues. We get along. If those that claim they are with the Speaker and those who claim they are with me have issues among themselves, it is for the Speaker and I to resolve these issues for them and not for us because we have no issues”.

Shooting down the plot to remove Gbajabiamila as the House leader, Doguwa said “Nigerians are tired” of the incessant bickering in the green chambers, insisting that the APC caucus is united.

“The leadership has no crack as far as we are concerned.

“As I am talking to you, Honourable Dogara and the leader of the House is in the same room in the office of the Speaker discussing and trying to see how we can move ahead. Nigerians are tired of this waiting”, Mr Doguwa explained.

“Any speculation made that there is a plot to remove the Majority Leader is unfounded and it is not from the APC”, the chief whip insisted.
