Bauchi Assembly resolves crisis as lawmakers take oath of office.
Full number of 16 aggrieved lawmakers of the All Progressive Congress (APC) led by factional Speaker of Bauchi House of Assembly, Kawuwa Shehu Damina, have finally taken oath of office and allegiance.
The Nation gathered the aggrieved lawmakers were inaugurated at a special session around 8pm on Friday at the Assembly complex.
The session was presided over by the Deputy Speaker of the House, Danlami Ahmed Kawule.
It would be recalled two Speakers had emerged at the inauguration of the Bauchi House of Assembly.

Applauding the development, Bauchi State Governor, Bala Mohammed Abdulkadir , who was also present at inauguration, said the victory was for the people of the state.
Mohammed praised the members for settling their differences.
He futher disclosed to newsmen that the state government resolved the crisis through intervention of relevant stakeholders, notably the traditional rulers.
The APC is the majority in the House with 22 members, the Peoples Democratic Party( PDP) has 8 while the New Nigeria People’s Party is left with only one member.
