With this move the APC as a party won't be producing any other person to contest the office of Speaker of the House aside Gbajabiamila unless of course he withdraws on personal grounds.

The straw poll for Senate President starts by 8pm tonight at same venue.

Watch out for the dog fight between Lawan and Saraki.

[color=#990000][/color]How United State Speaker is Selected

The House of Representatives elects the Speaker of the House on
the first day of every new Congress and in the event of the death
or resignation of an incumbent Speaker. The Clerk of the House
of Representatives requests nominations: there are normally two,
one from each major party (each party having previously met to
decide on its nominee). The Clerk then calls the roll of the
Representatives-elect, each Representative-elect indicating the
surname of the candidate he or she is supporting.
Representatives-elect are not restricted to voting for one of the
nominated candidates and may vote for any person, even for
someone who is not a member (or member-elect) of the House at
all. They may also abstain by voting "present". [3]

Note that it is stated that the political parties made the decision of
who to contest ahead of time. And each party only present one
person.

APC is doing the right thing
