A member of the Delta State House of Assembly Keston Okoro was supposedly sent out of the Assembly floor yesterday, September 16, 2014, for being indecently dressed.
According to a Leadership reports, speaker of the house Peter Onwunsanya gave the order that Okoro should not be re-admitted into the house until he learned how to dress properly.
“My dear Speaker and members of this House, as honorable members, we are here to work according to the rules and regulations of this House. Therefore, let me draw your attention to the sitting position of the member representing Udu constituency and to say his mode of dressing is a total disrespect to this honorable House. Our mode of dressing should depict us as responsible members of the House, representing the people in our respective constituencies,” said Daniel Mayuku, one of the House members.
According to reports, Okoro was corrected in accordance with Rule 57 (11) of the House, which states “that when a member is not properly dressed, he should be sent out until he does the needful.”
The “indecent” outfit Okoro wore remains unknown as there is no photo from the incident.
