Speaker Abbas Dissociates Self From Godfrey Gaiya Media Interview Granted

It has come to the attention of the Speaker, House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Tajudeen Abbas (PhD), that one of his aides granted an interview to a national daily in which he made some unsuitable comments.

For the record, the said aide, by the name Hon. Godfrey Gaiya, did not have the imprimatur of the Speaker to grant such an interview. Therefore, the comments made were those of Godfrey Gaiya and not Speaker Tajudeen Abbas.

In a statement signed by Musa Abdullahi Krishi, Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to the Speaker, House of Representatives, stated that for the avoidance of doubt, Speaker, Rt. Hon. Tajudeen Abbas (PhD), has a Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, who serves as his spokesman. All official statements from the Speaker come from his spokesman.

It is pertinent to mention that the Speaker has tremendous respect for and enjoys same from former president, Muhammadu Buhari, and the immediate past Governor of Kaduna State, Malam Nasir Ahmed El-rufai, and will not say or do anything that will negatively affect his good relationship with them.
