Protesting APC lawmakers walk out of Rivers Assembly proceedings


PORTHARCOURT— Four All Progressives Congress, APC, lawmakers staged a walk out yesterday during a proceeding of the state House of Assembly, protesting what they perceived as manipulations of the Order of the House by the predominant Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, House to elect a Minority Leader.

The APC lawmakers were apparently dissatisfied with the emergence of Mr. Benibo Anabraba, representing Akuku-Toru state Constituency 2.
Anabraba is a member of the APC but he is reportedly the son of a chieftain of the PDP in the state, Chief Ferdinand Anabraba.
He was nominated for the office of Minority Leader by a PDP lawmaker, Sam Ogeh, representing Emohua state constituency and the nomination was seconded by another PDP lawmaker, Edison Ehie, of Ahoada East state constituency II.
