House Speaker, Femi Gbajabiala (l),and Prof  Remi Sonaya.
The Presidential candidate for Kowa Party in Nigeria's 2015 Elections, Prof. Remi Sonaiya has spoken against the handling of the choice of principal office of the House of Representatives by Speaker Hon. Femi Gbajabila.

In a message on her official twitter handle, the retired Professor of French and Applied Linguistics, said House Speaker, Mr. Femi Gbajabiamila, sounded more than a tad arrogant today, and warned you that he should not test the resolve of the Green Chambers; wondering why Mr. Gbajabiala would tell his honourable colleagues, “I warn you not to test the resolve of this House. Otherwise, you would regret it."

Here’s how she put it, “House Speaker, Mr. Femi Gbajabiamila, sounded more than a tad arrogant today, wouldn't you say? ‘Not your best practices example of parliamentary language.’”

It will be recalled that crisis had broken out on the floor of the House of Representatives on Tuesday which set members on a collision course over the appointment of leaders for the chamber.

Mr. Gbajabiamila had been irked by the irreverent way some House members had conducted themselves, prompting the Speaker to react in a manner that has been considered a bit authoritarian.
