A member of the House of Representatives and Chairman, House Committee on Power, Magaji Da’u Aliyu, said the 9th Assembly was rancour and scandal-free due to the leadership of the Speaker, Femi Gbajabiamila.
Da’u Aliyu attributed the uniqueness and the success of the 9th Assembly to the leadership quality and style of Gbajabiamila.
He disclosed this after receiving an award of the Most Impactful Power Committee Chairman of the House.
The House of Representatives Press Corps organized the end-of-year get-together and award ceremony over the weekend in Abuja.
The chairman expressed delight at the milestone achieved by the 9th House, adding that if not for the leadership quality and style of the speaker, the height attained by the House wouldn’t have been possible.
He said: “I am proud of the 9th National Assembly. I have been around for sometime but the 9th Assembly, we think we did a lot of things differently.
“We worked together. We worked very hard and were able to achieve our set out targets. All these go to the Speaker, Femi Gbajabiamila, for the kind of leadership he has offered to us.”
Da’u Aliyu also commended the press corps for keeping the lawmakers on “their toes.”
“This 9th Assembly is scandal-free, and we also wish to commend ourselves for that. I also wish to commend the Press Corps for keeping us on our toes trying to make us do the correct things because if you know that there are people watching you, that would make you do the right thing. We would continue to work together,” he said.
