The Northern youth forum for good governance (NYFGG) has called on members-elect to support Abbas Tajudeen, a lawmaker from Kaduna, to become the speaker of the house of representatives.

Speaking with journalists on Thursday, Bilal Abdullahi, the group’s president, urged members-elect to respect Abbas’ nomination by the All Progressives Congress. (APC) to avoid the opposition capitalising on any fallout from their mistake.

“The Northern forum for good governance is using this medium to reach out to members elect to support Hon Tajudeen Abbas in his ambition. Undoubtedly, he is one of the most experienced hands in the house of representatives,” Abdullahi said.

“His contributions on the floor have been noteworthy, and his leadership of various committees under his purview has also been top-notch. Hon Tajudeen Abbas is a bridge-builder who understands the strategic importance of the house of representatives in the country’s socioeconomic development.

“Given that Hon Tajudeen Abbas has the endorsement of the president-elect, we wish to use this medium to appeal to the G7 and other members-elect to see the reason behind the choice of Hon Tajudeen Abbas.

“The APC must stay united at the risk of allowing some dramatic outcomes during the elections of principal officers in the house of representatives. The decision to endorse Hon Tajudeen Abbas is in the party’s best interest and not the fact that he is the most suitable candidate for the speaker of the house of representatives position.

“Hon Tajudeen Abbas is a loyal party man whose penchant for teamwork is tremendous. He has been known for carrying everyone along, and we believe this much he will do if supported to emerge as speaker of the house of representatives.

“The country’s challenges are enormous, and the incoming administration’s mantra is renewed hope. This can only happen if the party stays united and pursues a common goal.”
