<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 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>
