Pro-Dogara group in the House of Reps say they will never accept Hon Femi Gbajabiamila as the House Majority Leader. In a statement signed by Abdulmumini Jibrin representing Kano state, the group said true federal character as stated in the Nigerian constitution for the appointment of key positions in the National assembly must be enforced.
The group argue that the North East and the South West cannot produce any principal officer again after Hon Dogara from Bauchi state in the North East and Yusuf Lasun from Osun state in the South West already occupy key positions as Speaker and Deputy Speaker respectively.
The group has however offered to give the Gbajabiamila faction the opportunity to produce the next Majority leader but says that Femi Gbajabiamila himself cannot occupy the position. This has however been refused by the Gbajabiamila led faction who have said their position to ensure that Femi Gbajabiamila is made Majority Leader is non negotiable
