Agbese Confident G-7 Will Overcome Abass at 10th NASS

Some members of the House of Representatives known as the G-7 have made a mockery of suggestions that the group has lost a chance in the race for Speaker of the House.

Speaking to newsmen on Friday in Abuja, after the induction ceremony, the group’s spokesperson, Philip Agbese, said the G-7 is becoming more formidable and focused on producing the Speaker of the House.

He said, “We read with a big grin reports that the G-7 is fizzling out as not only was this seen as a classic joke, it showed that the entertainers are not aware of the reality on the ground. While they continue in a fairytale, we have taken concrete steps to produce the next Speaker, one who will serve the interests of his/ her colleagues and nation.

“In their latest outing, they admitted that the members of the G-7 are qualified to be Speaker, yet Abbas is being packaged as the best, a man with questionable character and not widely accepted among his colleagues.

“As we all know, the election of principal officers is the exclusive right of the parliamentarians. If indeed Abbas is well-loved and accepted, he should test his popularity against the G-7 and stop the propaganda.

“It is well known that Abbas and his cohorts are jittery over the strength of the G-7. We parade the best. Rt. Hon Idris Wase has been adjudged as the most honest parliamentarian. He is from the North Central, a marginalized region.

“Hon Muktar Betara remains a unifying force in the House which no one in the country has doubted. Yusuf Gagdi is one of the most articulate and outspoken youths of this generation. Hon Sani Jaji is a known security expert within the intelligence community. Hon Sada Soli is cut out for the job as well as Miriam Onuoha who has demonstrated in the last few years to be an extraordinary Nigerian.”
