Alhaji Aminu Tambuwal

Speaker of the Federal House of Representatives, Alhaji Aminu Tambuwal, has debunked speculations that he is planning a defection to the All Peoples Congress. Saying he still remains a member of  the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) despite widespread insinuations.
The Speaker spoke in Benin City shortly after paying a condolence visit to the Benin Monarch, Oba Erediauwa on the death of his eldest wife, Queen Esther Erediauwa. He also paid a courtesy visit to Governor Oshiomhole at Government House.
Asked if he is still a member of the PDP, Tambuwal asserted  that ?I am still a member of the PDP?.
Also, reacting to the directive of the APC leadership that the National Assembly should not pass the Budget, the Speaker said that the directive is meant for  APC  lawmakers and not for PDP.
He said, the House of Representatives has been calling on the Federal Government and security agencies to do everything possible to restore peace in Rivers State.
?We commend you for your efforts in not only promoting and sustaining very key and important developments in Edo  State but also,, promoting democracy and democratic ethics. You are one leader that we appreciate and pray that God will continue to sustain you in good health and may He continue to guide your state and by the grace of God, He will reward you abundantly even after leaving the office that you currently occupy.
?We are happy with you and I?m sure the people of Edo State are very happy to have a true and committed nationalist, a pan -Nigerian as their governor. We are in Edo State to condole the Royal Majesty and through the Comrade Governor to the people of Edo State on the transition unto glory of  our dear mother, Queen Esther Erediauwa.
Responding, Governor Adams Oshiomhole described the Speaker as a role model  worthy of emulation by all Nigerians.
Oshiomhole said ?You have been guided by the overall objective of a parliament that legislates and carries out its oversight function for the purpose of ensuring there is good governance  for the common man. You speak in unison on issues that affect national interest. It is a fact looking at national institutions that you are a presiding officer who has been able to make a statement not by mouth but by action that the National Assembly is truly one regardless of the political party.
?Let me say that in Edo State, our people admire you a lot for the very effective leadership that you have provided to the House that has a history of instability even when it was dominated by one political party. I am sure most Nigerians admire your leadership style in which you have carried everybody along in the House of Representatives. You are a role model with rare leadership qualities needed by every nation?, he said.
