The party, according to feelers planned to favour Femi Gbajabiamila,  decision which did not go down well with the Dogara camp.

Leading the walk out was  Abdulmumuni Jibrin, a member of the house, who had planned to run for office of Speaker but stepped down for Dogara.
Speaking to newsmen after walking out of the meeting, Jibrin described the election as an “ambush.”
