Abuja - The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) members in the House of Representatives have endorsed Hon Abdulmumin Jibrin, as the new Speaker of the House, reports Leadership.
His endorsement follows his meeting with some outgoing principal officers of the National Assembly on Monday.
The PDP lawmakers decided to support Jibrin because he was a member of the party before he defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The APC is expected to produce the Speaker having won majority of the seats in both chambers of the National Assembly.
The PDP lawmakers described Jibrin as a team leader with the charisma and capability to lead other lawmakers.
The APC has, however, not come out public on the modality for the emergence of principal officers at the National Assembly.
