“We have also come here to register our grievance contrary to the point of Order earlier raised by our colleague, Mr. Abejide Adeleke (ADC, Kogi) commending the outcome of the election adjudging it to be fair and credible. We want to state that, we are displeased with the violent actions meted out on innocent Nigerians which led to loss of lives and properties”.
