Dapo Abiodun, governor of Ogun state, has expressed support for the speakership bid of Tajudeen Abbas. 

Speaking when he received some reps-elect of the Tajudeen Abbas/Benjamin Kalu campaign team on Thursday in Abuja, Abiodun said members-elect from Ogun will vote for the duo during the speakership election on June 13.

“I, as governor of Ogun state, am standing solidly behind you (Abbas),” Abiodun said.

“I want to thank all those that have keyed into your leadership. As the president reminded us yesterday (during a meeting with APC lawmakers-elect), these are positions for the party with the majority. But that party must seek the partnership of other political parties.”


Abiodun asked Abbas to “carry along all members or most members” to ensure that he succeeds in his speakership bid.

“Your success will be measured by the way your members take the dividends of democracy to their people,” he said.

The governor said he believes Abbas will “provide meaningful, purposeful, meticulous, people-oriented leadership”.


The governor also said President Bola Tinubu has assured that he will work with governors and the national assembly, including members of the opposition, for the benefit of Nigerians.

“We (governors) met with the president two days ago. During our meeting, he told us that the campaigns are over. He said that he’d be president for all. So, he sought our understanding and collaboration,” he said.

“It is within the right of the president to seek those that will make his job easier. He has decided, in collaboration with the party, that these are the people that he wants to work with.

“All of us across party lines keyed into what the president told us. We had our meeting after meeting him and decided that we should support the president.”
