“And help us to resist oppressors’ rule with all our will, and might forevermore,” they chanted as they left the chamber.

According to a report by PeaceFMonline.com,the minority staged the walk-out over the delay of their share of the Common Fund for the Third Quarter of 2019.

They contend its a deliberate attempt to deprive them of working effectively and competing fairly with their opponents, especially with the General Elections barely 10months away.
