Godwin Amobi Ogar, a newly elected member of the House of Representatives from the Labour Party, expressed his admiration for President Bola Tinubu, acknowledging his intelligence and dedication to serving Nigeria. Ogar made these comments in an interview with reporters following a meeting between Tinubu and elected federal lawmakers at the State House. The purpose of the gathering was to address the ongoing leadership crisis in the National Assembly. Notably, the meeting included opposition politicians from parties such as the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Labour Party (LP), and New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP). Ogar expressed his happiness at being in the presence of President Tinubu and emphasized the leader’s intelligence, love for the country, and vision for a better Nigeria. He also highlighted the significance of the meeting in promoting a more stable legislative house and emphasized the importance of unity and nation-building, regardless of party affiliation.
Speaking with newsmen after the meeting, Amobi said, “Well, I can tell you that today is my best day, today I’m so happy that I’m an elected member seeing my President talking. In fact I never knew that this man is so intelligent. I never knew that this man is so prepared to serve this country.
“I saw the love, I saw the character, I saw the charisma, the belief that Nigeria can be a better nation. So I’m so glad that the meeting we have today is going to take us a little bit to a more stabilised house. Now, even without talking to us again, we’ve agreed that we are going towards the government decision. Not minding, I’m of Labour Party.
“As at now, the party is not the issue; we’re talking about building the Nation, we’re talking about the unity of the nation.”
