Federal House of Representatives started began a special session on Monday to deliberate on the Federal Government’s announcement of an increase in the price of Premium Motor Spirit, popularly called Petrol.
However, the plenary degenerated into a rowdy session, as lawmakers of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) refused to allow the Minister of State For Petroleum, Dr. Ibe Kachikwu, to be admitted into the chamber.
The Minister was invited to brief lawmakers on the situation in the petroleum sector.
But the PDP lawmakers waved the National flag, singing protest songs and were hell bent on not allowing the Minister entry into the Representatives’ chamber.
