The Majority Leader of the House of Representatives, Alhassan Ado-Doguwa has come out to declare his bid for the Office of the Speaker in the coming 10th National Assembly.

He recently had his say while speaking to the press, and Nigerians have been reacting.

According to him, he actually stepped down for Femi Gbajabiamila to become speaker of the 9th House of Assembly and his journey to the leadership of the House can be likened to that of the incumbent speaker’s.

He added that the people asking him to run believe he is among the qualified candidates for the job.

His words, “Not just because I am deserving (sic) but because I have the capacity and experience to deliver on the expectations of millions of Nigerians who believe that our democracy must be led by competent and experienced leaders.”

“I am a strong and committed party man and have stated it categorically clear in other fora that, because of my absolute loyalty to the party and my unflinching respect for party supremacy, my ambition will be predicated only on the condition that the party zones the speakership position to the North-West Zone which is my immediate constituency.”

“I have realised that it is necessary to heed the call of the people who believe in my capacity to seek the Office of the Speaker of the House of Representatives. I am committed to working with my colleagues and all Nigerians to deliver on their expectations and to preside over the house to the best of my ability in the overall interest of the people.”
