Following the emergence of the member representing Surulere federal constituency 1 in the lower chamber of the National Assembly, Hon Femi Gbajabiamila, as the new speaker of the 9th Assembly, prominent Nigerians such as Godswill Akpabio( former governor of Akwa-Ibom), Dele Momodu( Ovation Magazine ) owner, and other Nigerians have reacted.
Akpabio in his reaction describes Gbaja as a man who believes so much in the unity of Nigeria before going on to add that he is the best man for the job.
Dele Momodu in his reaction described him as a brand new senator and went on to congratulate him.
See their reactions:
Asides usual political sentiments, it is difficult to argue against the fact that Femi Gbajabiamila remains the best of all the candidates contesting for the Speakership slot. He has demonstrated legislative acumen and maturity that transcends party politics for almost 20yrs.

As speaker of the house, Femi Gbajabiamila will be a credit to Nigeria. A skilled lawyer; an experience and astute parliamentarian diligently building bridges across the fault lines of Nigerian politics. He is a man of honour and always a reliable and trustworthy friend.
