An All Progressive Congress, APC, Member of the House of Representatives has urged the governing party not to impose any candidate on the House as Majority Leader.

Mr. Muhammad Gudaji Kazaure from Jigawa State said members should be allowed to choose among themselves for justice, equity and fairness.

Mr. Kazaure explained that House rules and extant laws must be respected to maintain the independence of the legislative arm and promote cordiality among all the arms of government.

Nigerians have expected the House to announce its principal officers on Tuesday, when the lawmakers resumed after two weeks break, as the Senate did, but reports indicated that more consultations are on and that the leadership will be announce before the week runs out.
