Femi Gbajiabiamila polled 154 votes to defeat his closest rival, Yakubu Dogara, who garnered 3 votes. The number of invalid votes was 4.

The National Publicity Secretary of the party, Alhaji Lai Muhammed, had told newsmen that the major contenders agreed to sign an undertaking to accept whatever is the outcome of the primary election.

For the position of deputy speaker, the incoming APC reps members gave Hon. Tahir Monguno, who was the sole candidate in the primary election, 153 votes, while the invalid votes amounted to 8.
