Minority stages walkout over ad hoc committee report

The Minority members in Parliament have walked out of the House after complaining the report of the five-man ad hoc committee was too voluminous.

The report, which exonerates the Ministry of Trade and Industry of any wrongdoing, was expected to be debated on by the House on Tuesday.

But immediately after the report was laid, the Minority members through their leader, Haruna Iddrisu, said they needed more time to go through it before triggering any debate whatsoever.

They therefore walked out of the chamber.
