I will redefine public perception of NASS-Gbajabiamila



Gbajabiamila made the pledge at his maiden meeting with members of his media team in Abuja on Saturday.

“Some of the reforms are already being rolled out such as the e-parliament and electronic voting,” he said.

He said as far as he could remember, this was the first media team by any speaker with the highest number of young people.

Gbajabiamila said although the task ahead of the team would be tough, he believed the members had the capacity to deliver.

“I am so excited about this team because you are mostly young people. I did my personal search on each of you and I came to the conclusion that you all should be part of my media team.

“I am not the only one excited about your appointments, a lot of people are excited about you people, and I feel good about that.

“Of course moving forward, Nigeria is all about young people; I know the task ahead of you will be very tough, but I also know that you all have the capacity to deliver,” he said.

The speaker restated his commitment to his campaign slogan, which is ‘Nation Building: A Joint Task,’ and called on the team to join him in achieving that.

Responding, the Special Adviser to the Speaker on Media and Publicity, Mr. Olanrewaju Lasisi, who is the leader of the team, thanked the speaker for finding him and others worthy of the appointment.

Other members of the team appointed on Thursday include Mr. Musa Abdullahi Krishi, Chief Press Secretary, Mr Dele Anofi, Special Assistant on Print Media, and Mr. Kunle Somoye, Special Assistant on Electronic and Broadcast Media.
