Gbajabiamila, who is viewed as the preferred candidate of the APC hierarchy for majority leader of the house of reps, met with the president for the second time after his last meeting with him in early July 2015.

According to reports by The Cable, while his first meeting had the attendance of 29 other lawmakers, Gbajabiamila's second meeting with Buhari was not a 'crowded' session.

The Cable further reports that Gbajabiamila's Friday’s meeting with the President may not be unconnected with the imminent resumption of the house on Tuesday, July 28, 2015.

It was further reported that Gbajabiamila declined to take questions from journalists after the meeting, saying that he was in a hurry “to see the chairman.”

Crisis has engulfed the house since June 8 when Yakubu Dogara defeated Gbajabiamila to become the speaker against the wishes of the majority of APC reps.
