The hallowed chamber of the House of Representatives is in commotion as pro-All Progressives Congress lawmakers have kicked against the election of principal officers by the Speaker, Yakubu Dogara.
The appointment of principal officers in the House of Representatives led to a serious fight with some of the federal lawmakers exchanging blows at the plenary of the House on Thursday.
There were clashes between members loyal to Dogara and members loyal to the decision of the APC in nominating principal officers.
There were attempts by some lawmakers to hijack the mace. However, there are fears that the mace might be missing or kept away from the chamber during the fracas.
Pro-APC lawmakers were chanting ‘APC, party supremacy’ while Dogara loyalists chanted ‘Dogara’.
The mace, which is the symbol of authority of the House, disappeared but was later carried to to the inner office of the Speaker, Hon. Yakubu Dogara.
