House leader survives removal plot
Enough is enough, it is time for change, Gbaja Must go! Join us in declaring a vote of no confidence in the House Leader! Members United For Change.
Apparently, the plot for Gbajabiamila’s removal was staged by his fellow All Progressives Congress( APC) members in the House.
A text message, obtained from Guardian Newspapers, which was circulated to that effect, reads:
“Honorable colleagues how long can we continue to condone the irresponsible efforts of the House Leader to derail the peace and unity of the House, is he the only Member in Nigeria? His absence at the special session today clearly shows his intentions and his unsuitability for this position.
“Enough is enough, it is time for change, Gbaja Must go! Join us in declaring a vote of no confidence in the House Leader! Members United For Change.”
Guardian Newspapers, reports that a member of the house who spoke under anonymity, said “It is true there was the plot to remove Gbajabiamila. I am sure you saw the text messages on him before the meeting. We were all there and when they noticed that the plot will fail, they changed the topic of discussion by saying they want us to reconcile our differences. That was how the plot failed.”
