Members of the Edo State House of Assembly on Wednesday walked out the Chairman of Ovia South West Local Government Area of the state, Morrison Okhuarobo, for improper dressing.
Morrison was at the lawmakers’ sitting to render account of his stewardship since he was sworn-in as council chairman.
He wore a fez cap and a combat khaki trousers and shirt on which the words: “Proudly Oshio Picki” were inscribed.
The council boss was about to begin his presentation when Hon. Johnson Oghuma drew the attention of his colleagues to Morrison’s dressing.
Oghuma said, “The governor is well respected across the world. He does not come here dressing in khaki. The governor respects this House and dress properly when coming here. He should go and dress properly.
“This dressing amount to disregard and misconduct. He must tender unreserved apology”.
Other lawmakers concurred and insisted that Morrison should leave the chamber despite pleas by Speaker Uyi Igbe to allow him present the report.
The council boss left and returned an hour later dressed in a suit.
He apologized to the lawmakers for his dress code and went ahead to make his presentation.
