Betara who was referring to Tajudeen Abass who has also being picked by the APC National Working Committee (NWC) as its consensus candidate for the speakership vowed to go ahead to contest for the speakership during his official declaration in Abuja.

He said, “Femi Gbajabiamila gave me a name, He called me the “Head Boy”. I was surprised when my boss (Femi Gbajabiamila) nominated Tajudeen Abass outside of all of us seated here.

“If today, the deputy Speaker of the House is contesting, the chairman appropriation is contesting, the majority leader is contesting, then who’s closer to the speaker ?
