As the campaign for the Speakership of the House of Representatives continues, the representative of Wase federal constituency in Plateau State, Hon. Ahmed Idris Wase, has received the endorsement of North Central-based organisation, The Equity and Justice Forum.

The body said it has thrown its weight behind Wase, a member of All Progressives Congress (APC), to become the Speaker of the House of Representatives, and it has started wooing political stakeholders and members of the House to support the Forum’s candidate.

The Convener of the Forum, Femi Davies, who made this known in a press conference at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA), Lagos, said in the spirit of equity, fairness and justice, the group is supporting Wase to lead the House of Representatives in the next dispensation.

According to Davis, the North Central zone of the country deserves to be given a sense of belonging being the region that has never enjoyed such position, noting that Wase has the experience and leadership qualities to preside over the affairs of the House.
