Since moving from the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the opposition All Progressives Congress (APC) on October 28, the PDP and security officials have been trying to get him out of his honorable position as ‘number 4 person in the country’.

The PDP have allegedly tried to reconvene the House from its current adjournment without Mr. Tambuwal’s consent, while the police had taken away his security officials, saying that since he deflected to APC he should also cease to be Speaker.

My fate in the National Assembly is in the hands of God and my members of the House of Representative insha Allah,” the speaker told reporters shortly after the North-West zonal meeting of the APC on Saturday in Kaduna.

He also declined answering further questions, when asked if knows his chances against other aspirants in the APC vying for the position of the governor in his native Sokoto State.
