Aminu Jaji Aminu Jaji

Aminu Jaji, a leading member of the Speakership of the House of Representatives says he is still in the race despite reports that he has stepped down.

The lawmaker-elect from Zamfara State stressed that consultations are still ongoing with his colleagues to drum support for his ambition.

In a statement by his media office on Monday, he said reports suggesting his exit from the race was an attempt by his opponents to blackmail him.

The statement read, “Jaji is still in the race. We have consulted widely, and our colleagues have shown support.

“The fake news is unconnected with the massive support received in the last few days from Members-Elect across political divides, we urge our opponents to wait and allow members to choose their leaders.

“Ignore fake social media reports. Jaji is experienced, qualified, and competent enough to lead the 10th House of Representatives. Nothing will stop him. He has the blessing of the President and other party bigwigs, while the majority of the members elect are excitedly waiting for the election tomorrow. By God’s Grace, he will win.”
