Godwin Amobi Ogar, a member-elect of the House of Representatives from the Labour Party, has expressed admiration for President Tinubu’s intelligence and dedication to serving Nigeria.
President Bola Ahmed Tinubu recently engaged in a meeting with lawmakers-elect from opposition political parties to address the escalating leadership tussle, News About Nigeria reports.
Amobi, who hails from Abia State, shared his sentiments during an interview with journalists after the gathering between the lawmakers-elect and Tinubu at the State House, aimed at resolving the ongoing leadership crisis within the National Assembly.
By praising Tinubu, Amobi indirectly distanced himself from Peter Obi, his party’s presidential candidate, who continues to contest Tinubu’s victory at the Presidential Election Petition Court in Abuja.
The meeting, which took place at the State House in Abuja, was attended by senators-elect and members-elect from opposition parties such as the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), the Labour Party (LP), and the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP).
Reflecting on the meeting, Amobi stated, “Well, I can tell you that today is my best day, today I’m so happy that I’m an elected member seeing my President talking. In fact, I never knew that this man is so intelligent. I never knew that this man is so prepared to serve this country.
“I saw the love, I saw the character, I saw the charisma, the belief that Nigeria can be a better nation. So I’m so glad that the meeting we have today is going to take us a little bit to a more stabilised house. Now, even without talking to us again, we’ve agreed that we are going towards the government decision. Not minding, I’m of Labour Party.
“As at now, the party is not the issue; we’re talking about building the Nation, we’re talking about the unity of the nation.”
Amobi Ogar’s positive appraisal of President Tinubu highlights the latter’s intellectual prowess and commitment to the progress of Nigeria. This interaction among lawmakers-elect from diverse political backgrounds seeks to promote a more unified and constructive governance approach.
