The plot to oust Speaker House of Representatives may have failed as the House gave him a nod of approval as well as a standing ovation today .Newsdiaryonline had reported last night that the presidency and oil marketers were putting up last minute measures toward ousting Tambuwal.But their efforts,at least for now, have failed to materialize largely because Tambuwal and his men had their counter plot .
Today, it has emerged that Tambuwal also appointed John Enoh (PDP Obubra,from Cross River State as the new chairman of the fuel subsidy probe panel.The House is standing by the its Fuel subsidy probe report.Farouk Lawan who has been accused of taking $620,000 bribe by Femi Otedola of Zenon Oil reported to the police yesterday and has been detained.He may be charged to court, reports said.But Farouk has been telling people what he got was not a bribe.All the seedy details are expected to be revealed in court perhaps.
It is significant to note that though Tambuwal got a confidence vote from the House, the battle is not over.The plot to ensure the Honourable Mulikat Akande or someone else mounts the throne as speaker is said to be thick, a source said Thursday night.
Beyond that, it was further revealed to Newsdiaryonline.com that what is actually unfolding is part of the battle for the 2015 presidency.But the whole dimension remains hazy.However, in the calculations of those who see Tambuwal as an obstacle to their 2015presidential ambitions, this ‘speaker must go’.How it will be achieved remains to be seen.
