Majority leader of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila was a guest on Straight Talk with Kadaria where he spoke on the politics that played out during the election for the speakership of the House of Representative which he lost to Yakubu Dogara, his main rival at the time.
When asked if he believed he lost due to the backlash against Bola Tinubu who some House of Reps members believed was imposing him on the National party, he said;
“We have heard this and we have always heard about Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu. Its such a cry and shame that in this country, that is what we have to say about somebody who you know…..like it or leave it, without Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu we wouldn’t have an APC today.
He is not God but he is a vessel God has used to put that party together. He has put in his sweat. He has put in his money, He has put in his intellect, he has put in his energy. For those of us who know he was the bedrock of the party”he said
