The All Progressives Congress, APC, has finally taken control of the 8th House of Representatives as the majority party with over 214 members.
Emerging report has it that out of the total of 360 seats in the second chamber of the National Assembly, the outcome of the March 28 National Assembly poll, show that APC members are now 214, against the Peoples Democratic Party, which has 125 lawmakers.
According to the figures obtained by The Punch, the statistics gives a gap of 89 between the APC and the PDP in favour of the former.
The figures exclude the 11 federal constituency seats in Jigawa State, where election has yet to be conducted by the Independent National Electoral Commission.
When elections for the 11 seats are conducted, the APC will possibly get additional seats, meaning that its numerical strength in the House may be well above 214 at inauguration on June 6.
It was also gathered that three other political parties, Labour Party, the All Progressives Grand Alliance and Accord Party, share the balance of 10 seats, bringing the total to 360.
