Nigeria elections

Lagos - Sanai Agunbiade, a member of the Lagos State House of Assembly (LAHA) says the 8th Assembly in the state, may experience crossfire in its debates as eight opposition members would join the house.

Agunbiade, APC-Ikorodu I, who is the Chairman of the House Committee on Human Rights and Public Petitions, told newsmen on Wednesday that it may not be business as usual in the 8th Assembly.

"My expectation of the incoming assembly is that we will have crossfire of debates because the way we will see things might not be the way members in the opposition will see it.

"There are times we see things in the 7th Assembly on party lines and we will all agree, but in the 8th assembly, you will expect some digression.

"You will expect some antagonism based on party ideology and based on the manifestoes of the parties.

"So, you will see shades of opinion and I want to believe that with the calibre of lawmakers coming, we should be expecting more robust and constructive debates," he said.

The lawmaker, however, said that the members would work together in the interest of the state.

The People's Democratic Party (PDP) won eight state constituencies out of 40 in the just concluded elections.
