The delegation led by the State Governor, Abdulahi Umar Ganduje, was made up of former Governors, Senators, supporters of the All Progressives Congress, APC, traditional and religious leaders amongst others.
Immediately after the swearing in, Mr. Ado Doguwa was returned as the Leader of the House through a motion by the House Chief Whip, Mr. Mohammed Tahir Munguno that the former House Leader, Mr. Doguwa should take back as the House leader.
