The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has congratulated the Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Ahmed Idris Wase as he celebrates his 56th birthday.
The party in a statement by his spokesperson, Lanre Issa-Onilu on Monday, said Mr. Wase is a core party man, true progressive, experienced legislator and advocate of equality, justice and fairness.
“The party recalls the swift legislative attention and subsequent investigation Rt. Hon. Ahmed Idris Wase brought to the ill-fated recruitment exercise by the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) under the immediate-past administration.
“As the Chairman House Committee on Federal Character, he worked assiduously to correct disparities and imbalances in employment and infrastructural distribution across the country.
“In the leadership of the House of Representatives, the party commends the maturity, competence and cooperation the Deputy Speaker has displayed alongside the Speaker in guiding the affairs of the House.
“This has resulted in the stability and cross-party support for the current House leadership as well as Legislative-Executive cooperation that has ultimately brought about many pro-people legislative interventions and good governance.
“We pray for good health and wisdom as Rt. Hon. Ahmed Idris Wase continues to contribute to national development, growth of our great party, and upliftment of his constituents.”
