See Why PDP Senators Staged Walkout During Plenary Today


Some senators of the main opposition party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) walked out during Wednesday’s plenary session.

VANTAGE NEWS reports that more than ten senators left the red chamber during the proceedings after Senate President Ahmad Lawan dismissed a resolution on security.

The Senate Minority Leader, Philip Aduda, in a Point reminded the Senate of the subject of national security and measures taken to address threats made by terrorist groups in recent times.

Aduda reminded other senators that they had agreed to give the president an ultimatum to resolve the issues of insecurity and give an impeachment notice if the demands are not met.

VANTAGE NEWS reports that Aduda’s Point of Order was waved aside by Lawan who interrupted the senator, saying that he failed to cite the order and also did not discuss the issue with him privately.

According to Lawan, the Senate has passed the stage of such an issue brought by Aduda and has moved on to other matters of the day.

This angered some senators who did not fail to express their disapproval over the way Lawan handled the issue raised.

It degenerated into a rowdy session in the senate as some aggrieved PDP senators were seen leaving their seats and exiting the chamber.

Some APC senators moved that the plenary continues without the aggrieved senators that staged a walkout.
