Drama in the house of reps as Aminu Tambuwal joins another party

A drama took place on the floor of the House of Representatives yesterday when Speaker Aminu Waziri Tambuwal raised the hands of three of his colleagues who, like him, are contesting for governorship seats in their respective states.


Drama in the house of reps as Tambuwal joins another party

Tambuwal is the governorship candidate of the All Progressive Congress in Sokoto state. He raised the hands of the Deputy Speaker of the House, Emeka Ihedioha and Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, who are seeking for governorship on the platform of the PDP in Imo and Enugu states respectively.

The other lawmaker is Dakuku Peterside of APC, who is the party’s governorship candidate in Rivers state.
Dakuku first went to Tambuwal for a private discussion when suddenly the speaker called on Ihedioha and Ugwuanyi to be part of the meeting. When they arrived, Tambuwal stood up and raised their hands, as they all laughed jokingly and their other colleagues on the floor joined them.
Soon after that, six other representatives who are contesting the Senate tickets in their states went to meet Tambuwal for the same treatment and he raised their hands also. Unsurprisingly, the laughter continued. Those concerned included minority whip Samson Osagie, John Enoh, Abubakar Momoh, Uche Ekwunife and others.
But minority leader Femi Gbajabiamila came up jokingly with a point of order, saying that they needed to know where Tambuwal belongs, having raised Ihedioha and Ugwuanyi’s (who are of the PDP) hands.
Tambuwal simply replied by saying that his official car’s number plate carries ‘Federal Republic of Nigeria’ and not the logo of any political party. The Speaker added that his party is the ‘Federal Republic of Nigeria.’

It will be recalled that the House of Representatives may ban the use of Hiace buses for commercial transportation pending the outcome of an investigation into the road worthiness of the buses.
