The Minority Leader of the just ended 7th House of Representatives, Hon Femi Gbajabiamila, has emerged the choice candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the House speakership.
In a mock primaries conducted by the leadership of the party in Abuja on Saturday, Gbajabiamila polled 154 votes.
But this development happened amidst heavy protest by Gbajabiamila’s rival, Hon. Yakubu Dogara who staged a walk out from the premises with his supporters after he was announced to have polled 3 votes.
To them, the senerio was more like an ambush as the party did not tell the candidates or advitised that they were going to conduct the primaries. But prefered any of such election to hold at the House Chambers.
