The All Progressives Congress (APC) lawmakers spoke in turns at the Surulere General Assembly’ on Thursday night.\
They said that they would support his bid to seek re-election to serve his people through quality representation.
They appealed to residents of Gbajabiamila’s constituency to also support him in his bid to seek re-election.
The lawmakers are: Jide Jimoh (Yaba Fed. Constituency), Ayo Joseph (Apapa), Rotimi Agunsoye (Kosofe) Yusuf Ayinla (Mushin 2), and Olaitan Nurudeen (Ifako-Ijaiye)
Gbajabiamila has been representing Surulere 1 Federal Constituency in the green chamber of the National Assembly since 2003.
Recall that some members of the APC had on Tuesday protested against the the 5th term ambition of Gbajabiamila.
Jimoh described Gbajabiamila as an asset to the House of Representatives, who he said, had acquitted himself remarkably well as a legislator.
“We are here today to thank Surulere for giving to the house an impactful legislator like Hon.Gbajabiamila.
“He has been an asset to the house with his great presentation of issues and robust contributions to sessions.
“We are proud of him and we want you, his constituents to unite and support his bid to seek re-election,” he said.
Jimoh said that Gbajabiamila was already a principal officer of the house and replacing him with someone else at this point would not give much benefit to the constituency and the state.
Also speaking, Joseph said lawmaking was about experience, passion and service.
He said that Gbajabiamila’s wealth of experience as a member of the House was a great asset not only to the National Assembly but also to the nation.
He urged residents of Surulere to speak with one voice and support the House Leader for another term to “continue the good work he has been doing”.
