It was gathered that the Minority Leader of the 7th House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila has emerged the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC for the House’s 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 advertised that they were going to conduct the primaries.
