<p class="">The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Mr Femi Gbajabiamila, on Sunday said Nigerians should expect better service delivery from the ninth National Assembly.</p>

<h1>Gbajabiamila gave the commitment in Lagos while speaking at a reception dinner organised for him by the state government.</h1>

<p class="">The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the dinner was attended by prominent personalities including Gov. Dapo Abiodun of Ogun State and Gov. Simon Lalong of Plateau State.</p>

<p class="">National leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu; a former governor of Ogun State, Chief Segun Osoba; and a former governor of Oyo State, Sen. Abiola Ajumobi, were also among those present.</p>

<p class="">Gov. Babajide Sanwo-Olu and his deputy, Dr Obafemi Hamzat, were with Gbajabiamila to receive guests at the dinner.</p>

<p class="">The Speaker said though the eighth National Assembly did its best, Nigerians expected the ninth one to surpass the achievements of the last assembly.</p>

<p class="">He promised that the new assembly would do better than the eighth assembly and would meet the expectations of Nigerians.</p>

<p class="">The speaker said the new assembly, particularly the House of Representatives, would do things differently to get better results.</p>

<p class="">Gbajabiamila assured Nigerians that the new House would make hard work and commitment its watchwords in order to meet the aspirations of Nigerians.</p>

<p class="">”<em>There is so much work to be done but little time to do it.We are going to work hard, we are going to do things differently.</em></p>

<p class=""><em>”We can’t do a thing over and over again and get a different result. The ninth assembly is going to do things differently for the good of Nigerians.</em></p>

<p class=""><em>”The eighth assembly did its best, but we will do better. We will do our best in the service in the service of the country.</em></p>

<p class=""><em>”We started with a slogan nation-building is a joint task, it cannot be done by one person. The ninth assembly would work for the good of the country.</em></p>

<p class=""><em>”We will put into practical terms the meaning of leadership; we are not just going to talk the talk, but we are going to walk the talk</em>,” he said.</p>

<p class="">Gbajabiamila promised to be the speaker of all and not that of any particular region or state.</p>

<p class="">He thanked the people of Lagos for electing him for a record fifth term in the House of Representatives, saying he would not take their support for granted.</p>

<p class="">He said he was indebted to Tinubu for inspiring him politically and helping to nurture his career.</p>

<p class="">Gbajabiamila said without Tinubu, he would not have gotten to where he was.</p>

<p class="">The speaker said he found the narrative before the House leadership election that a vote him was giving the Speakership to Tinubu very ridiculous.</p>

<p class="">He said those peddling that were doing so out of ignorance, as Tinubu only wanted the good of the country.</p>

<p class="">Gbajabiamila thanked the state government for the reception dinner, saying he felt really loved by the gesture.</p>
