There was commotion again at the Abia State House of Assembly in Umuahia yesterday following the decision of 11 members of the People’s Democratic Party PDP to stage a walkout from the chambers in protest, just as newsmen were prevented by security men from entering the legislative chambers to cover proceedings.

The PDP lawmakers were protesting the non-emergence of PDP members as principal officers for the positions of Majority and Deputy Majority leaders and are also demanding proper interpretation of Standing Order 8, Rule 42.

During the plenary, there was a large presence of policemen and other security officials believed to be the Department of State Security while the representative of Obingwa West State Constituency Solomon Akpuluonu spoke to the press after the walkout.

He highlighted that when they reviewed the votes and proceedings of the House for adoption, they discovered that the names of the House members they had been opposing were repeated, prompting them to demand the removal of the names, stressing that they would not participate in what they consider illegality, as the PDP refuses to accept the role of a minority party.
