However, Speaker of the House asked what would be the case if an older woman violated a younger man just before the recommendation was up for vote.

Gbajabiamila’s comment thus generated uproar in the House, as the voting commenced.

When the prayer was put on for voting, the nays had the day as the recommendation by James Faleke was totally ruled out.
