VIDEO: Nigerian Lawmakers in Another Show of Shame

A meeting between the seven governors of the Baraje-led new Peoples Democratic Party faction, and members of the House of Representatives ended after fighting broke out.



The governors, alongside the chairman of the faction, Abubakar Baraje, met first with Senate President, David Mark.

A follow up meeting at the House of Representatives with Speaker Aminu Tambuwal, and members of the House, degenerated into chaos with supporters of the Bamanga Tukur-led PDP jeering at remarks made by Mr Baraje.

The chaos soon escalated after two members, Dagogo Peterside and Henry Ofongo, from Rivers and Bayelsa states respectively, went up against each other.

Mr. Baraje told Mr. Mark that President Goodluck Jonathan must give up his ambition for a new term.


It would be noted that the leadership of the faction and its seven governors on the night of September 16, 2013, held a strategy meeting where they reviewed the outcome of Sunday’s meeting between the ‘rebel’ governors and the President.
