Reps Speakership: Tinubu, Betara hold closed-door meeting

A contender for the Speakership position of the 10th House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Muktar Betera Aliyu, was in a closed-door meeting with the President-elect Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu to seek his support and endorsement.

The member representing Biu/Bayo/Shani and Kwaya Kusar Federal Constituency of Borno State has been canvassing support for his speakership aspiration with party members, House of Reps members-elect, former lawmakers and other stakeholders.

In a video made available by his media office on Wednesday morning, Tinubu held Betara’s hand as he led him into the inner room for discussions.

Betera’s consultation visit to the President-elect took place at his new official residence at the Defence House in Abuja, following the latter’s return from vacation and the Muslim lesser Hajj in Saudi Arabia.

Also seen in the video alongside Betara were the outgoing Senate President, Sen. Ahmad Lawan; former Ekiti State Governor, Kayode Fayemi; and other loyalists of the President-elect.
