The topmost contender for the Speakership post in the 10th House of Representatives, Hon. Muktar Betera Aliyu has visited the President-Elect Bola Ahmed Tinubu with a view to extracting his support and endorsement.
The member representing Biu/Bayo/Shani and Kwaya Kusar Federal Constituency of Borno State has been canvassing support for his speakership aspiration with party members, Members-Elect, former Lawmakers and indeed stakeholders throwing their weight behind the lawmaker who they described as a man of the people.
His campaign and consultation to the President-elect is one out of many consultation he has embarked upon in the last three months ahead of June inauguration.
In a video made available by his campaign Media office on Wednesday morning, the President-elect personally held Hon. Betara’s hand as he led him into the inner room for discussions.
Betara who currently chairs the House of Representatives Appropriation Committee, had earlier exchanged warm pleasantries with the incoming Commander in Chief shortly after having some photo sessions.
Betera’s consultation visit to the President-elect took place at his new official residence at the Defence House in Abuja, following the latter’s return from vacations and the Muslim lesser Hajj in Saudi Arabia.
Also seen in the video alongside Betara were: the outgoing president of the Senate, Sen. Ahmad Lawan, the House of Representatives’ Speaker, Femi Gbajabiamila, former Ekiti State governor, Kayode Fayemi and a host of other loyalists of the President-elect.
