APC Chieftain Tasks Party Leaders On Unity

An All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain, Hashim Suleiman, has urged party leaders not to allow the race of the 10th National Assembly leadership to divide the party.

Suleiman, who disclosed this in a press statement, said such division will affect the party’s move to provide urgent leadership to Nigerians.

He noted that the party’s announcement of Hon Tajudeen Abbas alongside Senator Godswill Akpabio as choices for Speaker of the House of Representatives and Senate President respectively attracted some dissent.

He however charged party members to ensure that the incident that made Senator Bukola Saraki emerged Senate President in 2015 does not repeat itself.

He said it would be in the interest of   stability in the party which will enable its leaders to fulfill the expectations of  Nigerians.

He however canvassed support for Hon Abbas saying he is fit to be Speaker of the House.

Speaking on Abbas, he said, ‘‘You’ll be amazed at how many meaningful bills Honorable Tajudeen had sponsored since his being at the Green Chamber since 2011.

“During this period he had sponsored or co-sponsored 75 bills in the National Assembly with some on 1st reading, others on second reading, some others 3rd and many have been passed and signed into law by the President. Those bills already assented to include the National Blood Transfusion Bill as well as 18 of the 21 Federal Medical Centers assented to by President Muhammadu Buhari.

“Considering the criticality of the sort of bills that Hon Tajudeen Abbas has  interest in and equally pursues to logical conclusion, one cannot but wish him to preside over the House of Representatives at a time that our nation is in dire need of competence and criticality to advance.’’
