Continuity and Party Consensus
The plan to present the new principal officers to President Tinubu reflects a sense of continuity and party consensus within the National Assembly.
The backing of the Presidency and the Progressives Governors Forum adds weight to the chosen principal officers, while the anonymous APC chieftain highlights the lack of authority for Adamu to overturn the decision made by the APC caucuses.
