Reps Speakership: Gov Adeleke Promises  To Mobilize Colleagues For Wase’s Emergence

Ahead of the inauguration of the 10th National Assembly,  the governor of Osun state, Senator Ademola Adeleke has vowed to mobilize colleagues to actualize the aspiration of Ahmed Idris Wase as speaker of the House of Representatives.

“We don’t belong to the same party; it is immaterial. But when it was time to constitute the last National Assembly leadership and you agreed with your party to step down for their choice, it means you are a man of integrity and character; you have shown character. It means ‘Wase Lokan, the governor told the deputy speaker and his entourage.

Wase was at the residence of the Osun governor to consolidate the earlier consultation he had with him at the home of former Kebbi governor, Adamu Aliero.

According to Governor Adeleke, his choice of Wase was based on the recommendation of Aliero with whom he enjoys confidentiality and political collaboration.

“You are highly recommended by former governor and Senator Aliero, someone I respect so much and we have collaborated on many occasions while we were together in the 8th senate. He has told me you are eminently qualified and I believe him.

“Be rest assured, please. Osun state is for you and I will personally talk to my colleagues to ensure we deliver you as speaker”, he said.
