House of Representatives walks out member for improper dressing [PHOTO]
The House of Representatives on Wednesday tactically walked out a member for improper dressing.
The House rules proscribe a dress code for members attending plenary with members expected to wear a suit and tie or in traditional dress with a cap to match.
The member, whose name could not be ascertained, reportedly walked into plenary towards the end of the day’s proceedings.
Raising of order, Hon. Billy Osaweru (APC, Edo) drew the attention of the House to the mode of dressing, which he said contravened the dress code for members of the House.
He said: “Mr. Speaker, our rules state the need for proper dressing while coming for plenary. Mr. Speaker, if you look upstairs, there is a member in Chamber wearing a T-Shirt and jean trousers.”
However, while Osaweru was raising the point of order, the member stood up and walked out of the Chamber with Speaker Tajudeen Abbas saying “point of order complied with”.
