Twitter ban: PDP Reps stage walkout

*Summon Lai Mohammed

House of Representatives members elected in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Tuesday staged a walkout while the plenary was on in protest over ban of Twitter by the Federal Government.

PDP Caucus leader, Rep Kingsley Chinda, who briefed newsmen alongside 19 PDP members said, “We walked out of plenary because because we want the immediate reversal of the Federal Government ban on Twitter before the legislature/Executive deliberate on it.

The house erupted in crisis after Speaker, Femi Gbajabiamila, read his opening speech where he mandated four committees to investigate the Twitter Federal Government imbroglio.

Chinda, leader of the caucus had moved that before legislative business commences its investigation it should first of all unban Twitter.

His move was over ruled by the speaker and this led a rowdy session and the PDP caucus walked out of plenary.

The speaker had said”by way of a rescission, you ought to come with a motion that is the rule.
