10th N’Assembly: Group wants Rep Sada Soli as House Speaker

A ranking member of the House of Representatives Sada Soli has been urged to run for Speaker in the 10th National Assembly.

The call was made by the Legislative Governance Group (LGG) in a statement ssued by its Secretary-General Stanley Ekpa. The statement is titled “Happy birthday Hon. Sada Soli: it is an era for service”.

Dateline Nigeria reports that Sada Soli representis Jibya/Kaita Federal Constituency. from Katsina State in North West. He was re-elected to the 10th National Assembly in the February 25th elections.

The group said, “Following the victory of the All Progressive Congress (APC) at the federal election, with commanding majority at both chambers of the National Assembly, it is now time for APC to consider constituting the leadership of the National Assembly with a clear sight on ensuring that credible candidates like Honourable Sada Soli are elected to ensure quality and balancing of power amongst all the geo-political zones.

“It is our contention that since the President is from the South West, the Vice-President from the North East, with the potential of the Senate President coming from the South East or South-South, the Speaker of the House of Representatives should come from the North West: which fortunately is the core support base of the APC, with the highest number of bloc votes for the party’s convincing victory at the just concluded presidential election.

“Beyond the need for power balancing, Nigeria needs a Speaker with a clear understanding of impactful legislative leadership and Hon. Sada readily brings his years of service, experience, leadership and voice of reason to bare.

“It is on this note that we call on the leadership of the All Progressive Congress and His Excellency, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the President-Elect, to consider the rich political and leadership values that Hon. Sada Soli will bring to service to our country as the Speaker of the House of Representatives if elected.”
