FREEPRESS – National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress(APC) Comrade Adams Oshiomhole has said the party has to deliver with the emergence of Senator Ahmed Lawan and Hon Femi Gbajamiabila as Senate President and Speaker respectively.
“So, today, that has been translated. You can just imagine how I feel; like a mother, we are on the verge of delivering twins in the two chambers of the National Assembly.
“For me it is our finest hour, particularly when you bear in mind what happened in 2015. It is the mischief of 2015 that we have tried to correct, and I am happy that it has been settled.”
Oshiomhole who spoke with reporters after Femi Gbajabiamila became the Speaker said: “For those who thought something was wrong with the APC, I think the outcome of the Senate election will humble them, not just for the victory but for the size of the defeat.
“They insisted on the secret ballot which is not good enough because in parliament the constituents must know how their representatives are voting. That will be the basis of supporting them in the future. But if the vote is secret, it means that they are not accountable.
