Drama at House of Representatives' as lawmaker introduces himself as R-APC member

There was a mild drama at the house of representatives when a lawmaker introduced himself as member of the Reformed-All Progressives Congress (R-APC).

The R-APC, a breakaway faction of the APC, is made up of aggrieved members in the ruling party.

According to TheCable, Bode Ayorinde from Ondo state had stood up to contribute to a debate on the floor of the house but his colleagues interrupted him immediately he said “I’m a proud member of the R-APC”.

The lawmakers kicked against the mention of R-APC on the floor, saying it is not officially recognised as an existing political party in Nigeria.

Mohammed Bago, an APC lawmaker from Niger state, told Ayorinde the R-APC is not recognised as a party in the lower legislative chamber, a statement that was supported by his colleagues in the ruling party.

Ayorinde, however, continued with his speech, but only after the intervention of Yakubu Dogara, speaker of the house.
