In a press statement released at the NAF Conference Center in Makurdi, the umbrella body for all Ethnic Youth leaders in the country stated that Hon. Mukthar Betera’s vast wealth of experience gained during the last sixteen years in the green chamber is unprecedented, making him the ideal candidate for the role.
Hon. Mukthar Betera, a professional accountant, is the current chairman of the house committee on appropriation and has served in various capacities in the previous assemblies. He is known for his critical decision-making and crisis management skills, which have endeared him to agencies and colleagues in the National Assembly.
Betera’s legislative interests include Youth and Women Empowerment, Developmental Governance, Health, Education, Social and National Security, as well as providing equal opportunities. In his constituency, he is believed to be responsible for the construction of 20 health care centers, 10 ambulances, a mini-stadium, and the installation of more than 600 solar-powered street lights.
The Ethnic Youth Nationalities of Nigeria called on the president-elect, His Excellency Sen. Ahmed Bola Tinubu, to give Betera all the necessary support to serve as speaker. They also urged their members who are currently in the House of Representatives to vote for Hon. Mukthar Betera as the next speaker of the 10th Assembly.
In conclusion, the Ethnic Youth Nationalities of Nigeria urged Nigerians to pray for peace, unity, and prosperity of the nation, as well as for Hon. Mukthar Betera to emerge as the next Speaker. They dispatched delegates to their various states to propagate the endorsement of Hon. Betera while wishing everyone journey mercies back to their respective States and local governments.
