The House of Representatives has taken over the Kogi State House of Assembly.

The Reps reached the decision on Wednesday, March 9, 2016, due to the crisis which has been rocking the state assembly for the past one month.

The House based its decision on Section 11 (4) of the 1999 Constitution, which provides that the National Assembly can take over the functions of any state assembly that is overcome by crisis.
