Buhari, Gbajabiamila meet again

A member of the House of Representatives, Mr. Femi Gbajabiamila, on Friday met briefly with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

Gbajabiamila is one of the principal actors in the leadership crisis rocking the House.

He was the preferred choice of the leadership of the All Progressives Congress for the position of the Speaker ahead of the election of the leaders of the 8th National Assembly.

Yakubu Dogara, however, emerged the Speaker after he defied the party leadership to contest the election against Gbajabiamila.

Efforts by the party leadership to also ensure that Gbajabiamia emerges the House Leader is also currently not going down well with the Dogara group.

The Friday’s meeting was the second one Gbajabiamila has so far held with Buhari.

Unlike the first one during which the President met with the lawmaker and about 29 of his colleagues loyal to him, only Gbajabiamila visited Buhari on Friday.

After his brief meeting with the President, the lawmaker refused to answer reporters’ questions.

He simply said he was in a hurry “to see the Chairman”, obviously referring to the APC national chairman, John Odigie-Oyegun.
