Governors of the All Progressives Congress (APC) have backed the candidacy of Senate Leader, Sen. Ahmad Lawan and Leader of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila for the ninth National Assembly leadership.
The governors under the aegis of the Progressives Governors Forum took the decision at a closed door meeting held at the Kebbi Governor’s Lodge on Sunday night in Abuja.
Governor of Kebbi, Alhaji Atiku Bagudu and Chairman of the Forum while briefing newsmen at the end of meeting, said the governors took the decision in compliance with the directive of the party’s national leadership.
Presently, we have a President who’s a Muslim, Senate President who’s a Muslim and Speaker who’s a Muslim.
I sincerely hope that this formation would not take the entire country into a compulsory membership of Organisation of Islamic Cooperation.
