The fight is between those loyal to the speaker, Yakubu Dogara and APC loyal party members.
Reports have it that the party had earlier sent a letter dictating who should emerge principal officers of the assembly. However, some lawmakers,especially those loyal to the 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.
More details later.
