Following the transparent process of election into
the Green chambers of the House of Representatives,
Hon. Yakubu Dogara from Bauchi emerged as
Speaker, House of Representatives.
In a contest of wits between him and Femi
Gbajamiabila of the All Progressives Congress
from Surulere 1 Federal constituency was
nominated followed by the nomination of Hon.
Yakubu Dogara, thus setting the stage for election
of the duo.
Both members are of All Progressives Congress,
but the Peoples Democratic Party members
preferred Dogara to Femi in which they had earlier
in the day announced their stand to support
Saraki as Senate President and Dogara as
Speaker, House of Representatives.
It was gathered that members of the
Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, made good their
promise of supporting Dogara who is their
preferred candidate because they had seen Femi
Gbajamiabila as being disposed to APC national
leader, Senator Ahmed Bola Tinubu.

Dogara scored 182 votes
while Mr. Ggajabiamila
polled 174.
