The by-election, scheduled for February 3, 2024, aims to fill the vacancy left by the former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, who previously represented the constituency, before President Bola Tinubu appointed him as his Chief of Staff.

Laguda scored 30 votes to beat the other three contestants: Raheed Owokoniran, Lawal Kabir, and Manzu Jemila, who scored nil.

The election was conducted by a five-member committee chaired by Buba Yusuf, while Dapo Lam-Adesina served as secretary.
