As the battle for leadership in the National House of Representatives lingers, the lawmakers engaged in a free for all fight. The fight was between those loyal to the speaker, Dogara(which includes PDP lawmakers) vs those loyal to the party APC ..
The party had earlier sent a letter dictating who should emerge principal officers of the assembly. However, some lawmakers,especially those loyal to the current speaker Yakubu Dogara felt the party has no right to dictate the leadership of the assembly.
Dogara’s attempt at selecting the principal officers this morning was rebuffed by the pro-APC lawmakers,resulting in Lawmakers loyal to the speaker forming a shield around him to protect the mace from being taken away.
