The chairman of the Progressive Governors Forum, and Governor of Imo State, Senator Hope Uzodinma says the Forum has resolved to back the choice of the party for the Speakership and Deputy Speakership positions of the incoming 10th House of Representatives, Tajudern Abbas and Benjamin Kalu.
The Governor disclosed this when he hosted the campaign team of the Abbas/Kalu joint ticket, led by the Joint Task –10th Assembly Coalition at the Imo State Governor’s Lodge in Abuja.
He said the party has made the best choice of presiding officers for the House, and the least the Governors should do is to ensure that the party’s preference and vision is actualized come June 13th.
The Governor commended members of the coalition who are drawn from the 8 political parties that won seats in the 10th House and urge them to reach out to those who are aggrieved.
The APC Speakership candidate and his Deputy, Tajudeen Abbas, and Benjamin Kalu, as well as the South East Zonal chairman of Joint Task – 10th Assembly, Hon. Nnolim Nnaji who is of the PDP commended the Governor for hosting the team and assuring them of the colleagues’ resolve to support the project.
They reiterated their readiness to ensure a united 10th Assembly and work towards actualizing the programmes and policies of the Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu led administration, bearing in mind the yearnings and aspirations of Nigerians.
