It was a big show of shame today, with the plenary at the House of Representatives being disrupted by some members over the nomination of principal officers.

Attempts were made to take away the mace but the sergeant arms and the security of the National Assembly managed to keep custody of the symbol of authority.

Earlier before the disruption, Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila who contested alongside Hon. Yakubu Dogara, was seen conferring with the Speaker, and then the situation escalated.

After calm was restored, the Speaker admonished the lawmakers not to start the 8th Assembly on a storming note, as they came to the lower chamber to represent their constituencies.
