A member of the House of Representatives, Nkeiruka Onyejeocha, has stated that she is more qualified to lead the lower chambers due to her years of experience.
Onyejeocha represents Abia state on the platform of All Progressives Congress (APC).
APC has, but, encouraged Femi Gbajabiamila for the possition.
In a press briefing on Tuesday in Abuja, Onyejeocha staked a declare for the possition because she had sponsored numerous bills amongst other motives.
She said: “In my over 11 years of being a member of the House of Representatives. I have served my constituents and Nigeria diligently and with distinction.
“I have sponsored several motions and bills, conducted oversight over multiple activities and initiatives of government, ministries, departments and agencies and helped to deliver meaningful constituency projects to the people of Isuikwuato/Umunneochi Federal Constituency of Abia that I represent.
“I have chaired very important committees of the House, including the Committees of Aviation and Women in Parliament.
“As the Chairperson of the Aviation Committee of the House for two sessions now, I oversighted the successful building of the new International Airport Terminal in Abuja, as well as the remodeling and renovation of several other airports and runways across the country.
“I believe that I am very well equipped with knowledge, experience and the integrity needed to manage bigger responsibilities.
“It is in the light of this, that I offer myself for consideration by my colleagues for a higher responsibility as a presiding officer and speaker of the House of Representatives of the 9th National Assembly.”
