The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon. Yakubu Dogara, has assured the Southeast geopolitical zone will be adequately compensated, following the non-accommodation of the zone in the House leadership structure.
Following the insistence by the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) that the House Leader must emerge from the South-west – the same zone the produced the Deputy Speaker – the South-east missed out in the allocation of the House principal positions.
The Speaker, during the inaugural meeting of the APC House Caucus late Wednesday night, also said all the crises in the lower chamber had been resolved and the House was now ready for legislative business.
Speaker Dogara said, “there are no more factions in the House as 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,” Dogara added.
