The All Progressives Congress, APC, members at the House of Representatives have reacted angrily to the mention of Reformed All Progressives Congress, R-APC, on the floor of the House.
This resulted to a protest which was quickly contained by the Speaker, Yakubu Dogara.
The protest started when a member, Bode Ayorinde, stood up to address himself as, “a proud member of R-APC.”
Mohammed Bago, another member of the House, opposed the mention of R-APC, saying that, “it was not recognized” in the House.
Several APC members agreed with Bago and attempted to shout down Ayorinde, but he insisted that it was his right to belong to any faction.
Calm has since been restored after the mild drama.
