Honourable Ahmed Wase has Emerged as the Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives.
Mr Wase was elected unopposed by about 358 lawmakers.
Wase’s nomination also cuts across party lines.
He was picked by Sade Sole from Katsina state while Onifiok Luke, a PDP lawmaker from Akwa Ibom state, seconded his nomination.
When the Clerk requested for other nominations, members-elect shouted ‘no’.
After the third requests with no nomination, he declared Wase elected unopposed as Deputy Speaker.
