Nigerians have taken to social media to congratulate the newly elected Speaker of the House of Representative, Rt. Hon. Yukubu Dogara over his victory.
Dogara defeated former Minority Leader of the House, Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila, in a keenly contested poll even as his party, rejected the election leading to his emergence.
While his victory is seen by political watchers as a grand plan by the opposition Peoples Democracy Party,(PDP) to deny the APC the opportunity to dominate the 8th National Assembly.
The PDP has earlier endorsed Saraki and Dogora who have since emerge as the Senate president and Speaker respectively.
Below are the congratulatory messages :
@doyakubu Congrats sir, we are proud of you. Rural rugged will never die… Lol

The Speaker also congratulates the new Senate President, Sen. Bukola Saraki, on his twitter handle.
Meanwhile, top APC stalwarts such as Vice-President Atiku Abubakar and Governor of Kwara State, Alhaji Abdulfatah Ahmed and Sokoto State counterpart, Hon. Aminu Tambuwal, have hailed the newly elected leaders of the National Assembly, urging them to see their emergence beyond the narrow interests of respective political parties.
