The National Assembly Acted Outside The Law Over No-Confidence Vote On IGP – AGF, Abubakar Malami

The Attorney General of the Federation (AGF),Abubakar Malami,

has said the declaration of a No-Confidence Vote passed by the

National Assembly on the Inspector General of Police is outside

the range contemplated by Sections (4) and (88) of the Constitution.

Malami said this yesterday when he made an appearance on Channels

Television’s current affairs programme, The Core, adding that the

oversight powers conferred on the legislature cannot be open-ended.

“If You look at the provision of Section 4 of the Constitution,

alongside the provision of Section 88 of the Constitution,

I think the fundamental functions of the legislature are (1),

lawmaking and then (2) oversight.

“The oversight that we are talking about is not open-ended.

We are talking about oversight functions within the context

of the workings of the Ministries, Departments and Agencies,

the major function of the National Assembly as it relates to

oversight functions is exposing corruption.

“That is the bottom line, so I cannot in all sincerity come to

terms with the reality of the declaration of a vote of no

confidence against the IG,” the AGF stated.

The Spokesperson of the Senate, Aliyu Abdullahi,

who was also on the programme, however, disagreed with the Minister,

insisting that the National Assembly acted in line with the Constitution.

“I don’t agree with that because that section says inefficiency

or waste in the execution or administration of laws within its

legislative competence and in the disbursement or administration

of funds appropriated by it. So, it is not just the issue of corruption itself.

“And when you say inefficiency, what is the definition of inefficiency,”

the lawmaker questioned.“It has to do with both processes, actions and

inactions. So, for me, I’m happy he has said we should operate within

the context of the law. That is true and all of us have to respect that,” he said.
