The National Assembly Reaffirmed Vote of No-Confidence on IGP.

 

National Assembly during an emergency session held on

Tuesday resolved that President Buhari must be

held accountable for the actions of his appointees and

that he should be willing to query any of their act

that could put the nations democracy in danger.

Among the resolutions reached by the National Assembly

during their emergency session reaffirmed its initial vote

of no confidence on Ibrahim Idris, the Inspector-General

of Police (IGP).

They also warned President Buhari over what they described as

“systematic harassment and humiliation by the Executive of

perceived political opponents”.

The resolutions which was read by Senate President

Bukola Saraki states:

“We also hereby reaffirm our earlier resolution on the

vote of no confidence on the Inspector General of Police,

who does nothing but preside over innocent Nigerians with

an outright disregard for the constitutional authority

of both the executive and the legislature.”

The Senate in May 2018 earlier declared the IGP as an

enemy of democracy and unfit to hold any public office

within and outside Nigeria over his continues refusal to

present himself before the lawmakers when

they requested him to.

Tuesday’s emergency joint session comes amid renewed

tensions between the legislative and executive

arms of government.

The tension is linked to the continues dispute between the

lawmakers and the Police IGP.

 

And also the incidence between Dino Melaye and the police,

the recent invitation of Bukola Saraki over his alleged

involvement with the Offa bank robbery suspects.

During the joint session, the lawmakers call for an end

to the persecution of perceived enemies and vowed to

go tougher in checking the powers of the President.

“The systematic harassment and humiliation by the

Executive of perceived political opponents,

people with contrary opinions including Legislators

and Judiciary by the police and other security

agencies must stop,” one of the resolutions read.

Also among the resolutions was the agreement that Buhari

should be responsible for the action of his appointees.

“The President must be held accountable for the actions of

his appointees and must be ready to sanction those that

carry out any act which will ridicule or endanger our

country and democracy.”

The lawmakers raises concern over the continues

killing in Nigeria over the year that has left many

dead and homeless. They request that security

agencies bead up their strategies and

find a lasting solutions to this problem.

 

“The Security Agencies must be given marching orders

to curtail the sustained killings of Nigerians across

the country and protect life and properties of

Nigerians as this is the primary duty

of any responsible Government.”

Following their joint declaration prescribing the IGP

as an enemy of democracy,

the lawmakers vow to take tougher action on their

own should the president do nothing about the IGP.

“The National Assembly will not hesitate to evoke its

Constitutional powers if nothing is done to address

the above resolutions passed today,”

they warned without giving further details about the powers.
