The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila on Tuesday swore in Chike Okafor as the replacement to Emeka Nwajuba who is now a Minister following appeal court judgment.

Dailypost reports that Mr. Chike who earlier was sacked by a lower court and replaced by Nwajuba was sworn in during plenary.


Abuja Division of the Court of Appeal in August sacked Emeka Nwajuba as the member representing Ehimembano/Ihiteuboma/Obowo Federal Constituency of Imo State at the House of Representatives, however, he was already a Minister-designate by then.


With the verdict of the court, Okafor of the ruling All Progressives Congress is the new member of the House.
