[G] A THIRD ASSEMBLY OPERATING UNDER A MILITARY [FEDERAL GOVERNMENT], AND A HAND-PICKED INTERIM GOVERNMENT
The Third Assembly commenced legislative proceedings from 14th January 1992 and continued under a handpicked Interim National Government that ended abruptly on 17th November 1993 when another military coup took place with General Abacha at the helms of affairs. The third Assembly was unique in several ways. Firstly, it was dominated by the Social Democratic Party (SDP) while the Executive was dominated by the National Republican Convention (NRC). Secondly, the Third Assembly started with an elected State civilian government working under a military Federal government headed by General Ibrahim Babangida.
Later on, the military President stepped aside and handed the reigns of power to a handpicked Interim National Government with Chief Earnest Shonekan as the Head of government.
The Third Assembly passed some laws and motions, which were peculiar in nature because of the prevailing circumstances that time which was the unjust annulment of the June 12 election of 1993.
The members of the state-legislature for the Third Assembly were as follows:
