As the petition against the election that brought Governor Caleb Mutfwang (Esq) has been settled by the Supreme Court of Nigeria, and the Executive Arm in the state has resumed work fully, the Legislative Arm is gearing up to resume its crisis of Leadership.

Pundits in the state are of the views that the Speakership position in the House of Assembly may become the new issue for political struggle.

They are of the views that the current Speaker of the House, who has been on recess since 21st of November 2023, may not have the clot to manage the coming contest as he is a minority among the 24 member Assembly.

Pundits who spoke to this paper on this issue have also expressed surprise that the Speaker, Rt. Hon. Gabriel Dawan, who is of the YPP had continued to hold the position despite the presence of 7 Lawmakers of the All Progressives Congress being led by Hon. Joe Bukar, who is a more experienced state Lawmaker.

REALITY gathered that nocturnal meetings have commenced on this issue through last week to fine tune a political solution to the leadership issue by the APC that has majority of the members.
