A House of Representatives member who wore T-shirt and jeans, walked out towards the end of the day’s proceedings, after Billy Osaweru (APC, Edo) drew the attention of the House to his mode of dressing.
Osaweru 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.”
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”.
The House of Representatives rules prescribe suit and tie or complete traditional attire for members attending plenary.
