Ahead of the inauguration of the 10th National Assembly in June 2023, Governor Nasir Ahmad El-Rufa’I of Kaduna State had appealed to the President-elect, Bola Ahmed Tinubu to support the emergence of Hon. Abbas Tajudeen, the Iyan Zazzau as next Speaker of the Federal House of Representatives.
Hon. Tajuddeen of the All Progressives Congress represents Zaria Federal Constituency and is the House Committee Chairman, of Land Transport.
Governor El-Rufai who spoke to party supporters in Zaria said his wish was to see Hon.Tajuddeen occupying the number one seat in the House of Representatives.
“Finally, I had wanted to travel to Lagos yesterday and see Asiwaju in respect of the Speaker. He said he would be coming to Abuja today.”
But the most important thing I will request from him if at all I contributed to his success in the election, the only payback is for the Iyan Zazzau to become Speaker .”
“I thank you immensely for casting your votes for him. This is because if you had decided not to vote for him, we wouldn’t have gathered here Alhamdulillah,” he said.
