A reliable source confirmed to BBN that all the 24 House of Reps members from Kano State on Friday endorsed the Surulere Federal Constituency 1 lawmaker as the incoming Speaker at a Stakeholders meeting held in Kano State Govt Lodge in Abuja late Friday night.

At the meeting on Friday were Governor of Kano State and his Deputy, all members of Kano State House of Assembly and the 24members of the House of Representatives.

It will be recalled that Hon Femi formally declared his interest to vie for the seat on Sunday, March 31st at an event he also declared Hon Abdulmumin Jibrin as his Campaign Manager. The position became open as the current Speaker, Hon Yakubu Dogara now belongs to the opposition party, the PDP.
