As the jostle for who becomes the speaker of the House Of Representatives continues, the lawmaker representing ATISBO/Saki East/Saki West federal constituency, Hon. Olajide Olatubosun, has been urged to join the race.
Saying that Olatubosun, who has just been elected for a second term, is qualified by all standards, a socio-political group, Youths For Good Governance, YGG, said it is time someone from the state aspired to lead the Green Chambers of the National Assembly.
According to YGG, in a statement by by its spokesperson, Comrade Shola Lawal, “We will be so happy if Hon. Olajide Olatubosun presents himself for leadership position of the House. For long, Oyo has been relegated to the background especially in the progressive fold. We should appreciate the fact that the leadership of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has zoned the position to the South West. It is now incumbent on Olatubosun especially to come out and contest.
“Our people shouldn’t concede everything to other people. We see it as not too good. If others aren’t coming out, Hon. Olatubosun is qualified. He should contest the speakership position. There is no harm in trying something. Those who have achieved greater things took risk. Anything that is easy isn’t worth it; he should signify interest and we will do what is within our reach to support him,” he added.
The group, however, urged the lawmaker not to relent in his good deeds for his constituents, adding that they have rewarded the good things he has done in his first term by re-electing him.
