The House of Representatives has commenced voting to elect the speakers of the house.
All is now set for members-elect of the 9th House of Representatives to elect presiding officers to pilot their affairs for the next four years.
A total of 360 members are expected to cast their votes for their most preferred candidate.
The race for the speakership would be a straight fight between former house leader Femi Gbajabiamila (Lagos, APC) and Umar Bago (Niger, APC).
Mr Gbajabiamila enjoys the support of most members of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) which initially declared him as the most preferred candidate.
