Rowdy Session In House Of Reps As Gbajabiamila Announces Elumelu As Minority Leader

There was a rowdy session at the House of Representatives on Wednesday over the announcement of minority leadership positions.

The incident broke out after Speaker, Femi Gbajabiamila, ignored a list by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in which Kingsley Chinda was nominated as the Minority Leader of the House.

He rather chose to use another list submitted by lawmakers from all the other opposition parties in the house.

Subsequently, Ndudi Elumelu was announced as the Minority Leader – a situation that led to protests as some aggrieved lawmakers attempted to take the maze.

They said they would not accept a situation where the majority in the house will impose a minority leader on members.
