No more faction in the House, say Dogara, Gbajabiamila

House of Representatives Speaker Yakubu Dogara has said the Eighth House is set to work for Nigerians.
He said lawmakers in the lower chamber knew that Nigerians were tired of the prolonged face – off over leadership in the House.
Dogara spoke yesterday at the conclusion of a meeting of the All Progressives Congress (APC) caucus on Wednesday night. The meeting ended about 12.15am yesterday.
He said: “There are no more factions in the House. What we have today is a group of lawmakers loyal to the House leadership and our great party.
“It is only in unity that we can positively contribute to the change we all worked for and move Nigeria forward towards our desired dream of a greater nation”.

He also said the Southeast geo-political zone, which was not represented in the new leadership because it has first-time lawmakers would be taken care of.
“We are working on that to see how the zone will be compensated,” he added.
Majority Leader Femi Gbajabiamila said the division in the House was over.
He assured that those perceived to have lost out, especially the Southeast, would be compensated.
“There are no longer factions in the House; whatever happened earlier is now behind us and we are ready to serve Nigerians to the best of our ability. It is not right to play the ethnicity or regional card for now but they will be compensated.”
Abiodun Faleke (Lagos) said:  “We are no longer fighting as you can see; we are now ready to work with other legislators and move our country forward.”
Abdulmunin Jibrin (Kano) said: “This meeting has healed all wounds. There is nobody here that is nursing any anger or ill-feelings any longer.”
