But voting conducted among members-elect present at the meeting and supervised by the APC leadership showed that Gbajabiamila got 154 votes while Dogara got 4.

However, Dogara’s camp has since rejected the outcome of the mock election.

As the time of this report, meeting between the party leadership and the Senators-elect is in progress. The meeting is expected to also elect its own Senate President Candidate.

There have been tension among APC legislators in the past two weeks regarding the leadership of the National Assembly. The Senate presidency is a two horse race between Senator Bukola Saraki, From Kwara state and Ahmed Lawal, Borno state.

Africa Examiner online gathered that the APC leadership is taking this step to avert crisis among its members in the National Assembly.
