Gbajabiamila emerges Speaker by defeating Bago

Femi Gbajabiamila, majority leader in the 8th house of representatives, has been elected speaker.

The chosen candidate of the leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) defeated Mohammed Bago, still of the APC, on Tuesday.

Like Senate President Ahmad Lawan, Gbajabiamila was the preferred candidate of the APC in 2015 but Yakubu Dogara, who was then of the APC, had teamed up with the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to defeat him.

Dogara had defeated him with just eight votes.
