Hon. Yakubu Dogara who represents Bogoro/Dass/Tafawa-Balewa Federal Constituency of Bauchi State defeated his contender, Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila, the anointed candidate of the All Progressives Congress. Dogara polled 182 votes to Gbajabiamila’s  174.

Dogara’s election was a move against the APC, which had conducted a straw poll for its candidates interested in the Speakership, during which Gbajabiamila carried the day with 154 votes.

Until the election, Gbajabiamila was the Minority Leader of the House while Dogara was Chairman House Services Committee.
