The member, representing Kaura Namoda/Birnin Magaji Federal Constituency of Zamfara State at the National Assembly, Hon Aminu Sani Jaji has been tipped to spring surprises and emerged as the Speaker of the 10th Assembly.
Jaji, a member of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has already declared his interest to contest for the office of the speaker of the 10th Assembly.
This is just as a a group under the auspices of Coalition of Concerned Citizens for Good Governance and Political Stability in Nigeria (CCCGPSN) has declared its unwavering support for Hon Aminu Sani Jaji to emerge as the Speaker of the 10th Assembly.
This is coming barely five days after a compromised faction of the National Working Committee (NWC) alongside the National Publicity Secretary of the APC announced Tajudeen Abbas as the anointed candidate.
The endorsement seems to have not gotten the endorsement of the President-elect, Bola Ahmed Tinubu and the majority of members of the National Assembly.
But CCCGPSN in a statement signed by its National Chairman, Ahmed Saleh Junior and issued to Journalists in Abuja, said that they’ve studied the lawmaker’s progression and development in party politics and the House of representatives for a very long time and resolved that he is the best person for the job who will also spring surprises when the 10th National Assembly is inauguated.
They explained that as critical stakeholders in the Country, they’re throwing their unwavering support for the Federal lawmaker because of his vast experience in legislative business, high powered connection and network within and outside the Country
”We wish to appeal to our leaders, stakeholders and all the new and returning Members-elect to consider the choice of Rt Hon Aminu Sani Jaji in the best interest of the good people of Nigeria.
“Our coming together is rooted in the realism that we are stronger together if we want the Ruling Party to maintain its’ position so as to enthrone an inclusive leadership that will secure and unite the Assembly for the general good of the country.
“As an educated, civilized and morally oriented seasoned lawmaker with the requisite experience and strength of character to pilot the affairs of the House having served as Chairman House Committee on Security and Intelligence, during which our Armed Forces got the required financial support in their budget in order to counter the various insecurities we have in Nigeria; ranging from terrorism in the North-East, IPOb/ESN in the South-East, Banditry and kidnapping in the North-west and Militancy/oil bunkering in the South-South for the economic stability of our Country.
“Concerned with the deteriorating insecurity in Nigeria, Hon Aminu Jaji sponsored NO 1) the National Security Agencies Act Amendment bill.
No 2) The Critical National Asset and Infrastructure Centre Establishment bill.
No 3) The Explosives Act Amendment bill.
No 4) The Hate Speech Prohibition Bill.
NO 5) The Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999 Alteration bill.
No 6) Elite Sheriff Office Establishment bill to mention but a few.
“The 10th Assembly needs a Man with proven integrity, independent mind and detribalised Nigerian who will protect the interest of the masses and deliver dividends of democracy to the downtrodden and not a rubber stamped speaker who will be controlled by the few selfish and misguided politicians,” the group added.
