Speaker of the House of Representatives Femi Gbajabiamila has today dismissed speculations that he intends to contest the 2023 Lagos governorship election.
Gbajabiamila, who spoke in an interview with Channels Television, said the thought of contesting any election at this point will distract him from his current engagement.
He also said the thought of contesting the number one position in Lagos State has never crossed his mind.
He added that Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu was doing a great job in the current situation.
”I have a job that I am doing presently. I don’t want any distraction. I have told those close to me that I want to concentrate on the job I am doing,” he said.
“I don’t have any plan to be governor. The current governor is doing a great job. The fact that we had a one-time governor before does not mean things will always be like that. He has done well in the midst of the difficult time we have had.”
The Speaker said he will want to be remembered as a lawmaker who came, got into a position and used it to work for the betterment of the country.
