Legit.ng gathers that the Assembly also elected Yusuf Zailani (APC), a former chief whip, as deputy speaker.

Shagali’s re-emergence as speaker did not come as a surprise to many because he has always been Governor Nasir El-Rufai’s choice.

El-Rufai had previously made a case for Shagali; describing the latter as the most dedicated, loyal and committed lawmaker who supported his administration in delivering good governance in the state.
