Jalingo - Dr Amino Malle, member representing Jalingo/Yorro/Zing Federal Constituency in Taraba, has declared his intention to contest for the Speaker of the House of Representatives in the 8th Assembly.

Malle, who has been re-elected on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC), announced the bid at a news conference on Sunday in Jalingo.

"I want to use this platform to formally announce my intention to run for the speakership of the House of Representatives.

Malle thanked the people of his constituency for re-electing him, adding that he would redouble his efforts to provide more dividends of democracy to them.

The lawmaker urged his colleagues to support him to realise his ambition for a better Nigeria.
