Hon Gbajabiamila rejects Dogara's peace deal


Despite the fact that the Sokoto State Governor, Aminu Tambuwal of the APC tried to intervene in the NASS crisis, it is far from over. 

The Speaker of the House of Reps, Yakubu Dogara's group had announced the concession of the Majority Leader to the Femi Gbajabiamila group. It however  stated that the position must  not go to the Southwest and Northeast because the two zones had already produced the Speaker and Deputy Speaker. 

Speaking for the Dogara's faction, Abdulmumin Jibrin said the group's insistence on having all zones fill the six positions in the House was in the interest of peace and unity of Nigeria.

''We went to the meeting and you have always known our position, we believe that we did not go against any provisions of the law of the party or the provisions of the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria electing the Speaker or his deputy.

''We also believe that there should be a level playing ground for everyone in terms of the occupation for the remaining offices of principal  officers that has always been our position.

''After a very lengthy meeting with his Excellency, Governor of Sokoto State, we were able to make a far reaching concession and this is to allow for peace to reign in the House.''
