Gbajabiamila writes Abbas, formally bows out as Reps' member

...Speaker declares seat of surulere 1, Lagos vacant

Immediate past Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila has formally resigned as a member of the House. 

Recall that the former speaker was recently appointed as the Chief of Staff to President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

In a letter addressed to Speaker Tajudeen Abbas at Wednesday plenary, Gbajabiamila said that he was resigning to officially resume duty in his new office.

Gbajabiamila who attended the plenary and moved a motion under personal explanation to submit his letter of resignation remarked that "Serving in the House has been a great honour".

Gbajabiamila had earlier moved a motion of urgent public importance on the need for the federal and State governments to evolve measures to tackle the impending flooding as predicted by the Nigerian Meteorological Agency (NiMet).

Meanwhile, the Speaker in a swift move after reading the letter declared the seat of Surulere 1 Federal Constituency of Lagos State hitherto occupied by Gbajabiamila for upward 20 years vacant upon the exit of the former speaker.

"On the account of the letter, we have declared the seat of surulere 1 vacant as from today", Abbas said.
