Both of them have been sworn-in by the Clark of the Assembly.
The former Speaker, who represents Sabon-Gari Constituency in the Assembly, officially submitted his resignation letter to the clerk of the House, on Tuesday morning.
It was gathered that members of the House had started collecting signatures to impeach the former speaker before he eventually bowed to pressure and resigned.
