House members throw punches, adjourn till July 21, 2015


The Nigeria’s House of Representatives displayed their trademark today, Thursday, when the honourables engaged one another in a free-for-all fight bringing the business for which they were elected to its knees, reports ITRealms.

Addressing members after every member has had a full dose of the altercation and fisticuff, the Speaker, Hon. Dogara Yakubu, appealed to the House members to make peace their hallmark, saying that as politicians “we promised a lot to the electorate and constituencies in the course of our campaign, there are a lot of expectations from the electorate.  For us in All Progressives Congress (APC) we promised change. If this House is divided we cannot achieve or deliver on those promises.”

He further said that as leaders the lawmakers must sit down and tackle the issues for which they were elected, including but not restricted to insecurity, poverty, unemployment, adding they shall sit down as leaders and resolve those issues that led to the crisis in the House.

On that note, he adjourned the House sitting till July 21, 2015.
