Mixed Reactions At House of Reps Over Kachikwu

by on May 16, 2016

There is commotion at the house of representatives at the moment.

Members of the house are divided over a motion to admit Ibe Kachikwu, minister of state for petroleum, into the green chamber.

Kachikwu is expected to explain the reason for the hike in the price of petrol from N86.5 to N145.

Femi Gbajabiamila, leader of the house, had moved the motion for the lower legislative chamber to admit Kachikwu into its fold.

But when Yakubu Dogara, speaker, of the house, put the motion to a voice vote, majority of the members chorused “nay”, protesting against allowing Kachikwu into the chamber.

But Dogara ruled against the majority voice which sparked a shouting match at the chamber, disrupting the proceedings.

Some members soon started chanting “All we are saying, save Nigeria.”

The cacophony continued even as of the time of filing this report.
