House of Representatives member-elect for Ibadan North federal constituency, Prince Musiliudeen Olaide Akinremi, is on the entourage of the majority leader of the House of Representatives and preferred candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, for the position of speaker in the 9th  national assembly, Mr Femi Gbajabiamila, to Saudi Arabia where they are currently observing the lesser Hajj (Umra)

Jagaban, as Akinremi who is the south west coordinator for newly-elected members is fondly called, is in the Holy Land with over 50 other members-elect, where a prominent Islamic leader in the North, Sheikh Dahiru Usman,  was said to have endorsed Gbajabiamila for the position.

The Senior Legislative Aide to Gbajabiamila, Mr Olanrewaju Smart, in a statement issued on Wednesday night, said the federal lawmaker had been receiving endorsements from within and outside the National Assembly.

The statement read, “Renowned Islamic leader, Sheik Dahiru Usman, earlier today (Wednesday) endorsed and offered prayers for the House Leader, Femi Gbajabiamila, as Speaker of the ninth Assembly.


“The endorsement, which took place at the courtyard of Grand Mosque in Mecca, was the latest in the series of endorsements from different stakeholders within and outside the National Assembly in favour of Femi Gbajabiamila.

“The House Leader is in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for lesser Hajj and is billed to return to Nigeria to further his campaign ahead of June 10, 2019 inauguration of the National Assembly.

“With him in Saudi Arabia are over 50 members-elect from across the 36 states of the federation,” he added.
