Reps probe Jibrin, Gudaji over comments on move to impeach Buhari Mainnews.blog June 6/2018 10 PM

THE House of Representatives on Wednesday directed its committee on Ethics and Privileges to investigate Honourable Abdulmumini Jibrin over his claim that the executive joint session conveyed by National Assembly leadership where a plot to impeach the President, Muhammadu Buhari was raised, was a Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) affairs.
The House resolution followed a matter of breach of personal privilege raised by Honourable Sunday Karimi.

Honourable Karimi while speaking on the floor of the House said that Honourable Jibrin statement on what transpired at the executive session contradict the issue discussed at the session.

To this end, he called for an investigation into the allegation adding that there was a need for the House to call Honourable Jibrin to order.

Supporting the motion Honourable Ossai Ossai who is the chairman House committee on Ethics and Privileges also raised a similar breach of privilege where he claimed that, another lawmaker, Honourable Gudaji Kazaure alleged that himself and Honourable Kingsley Chinda were spearheading the collection of signatures from members to impeach President Buhari.

He, however, said that as the chairman of Ethics and Privileges, he was ready to step down for his deputy to take up the issue.

On his part, Honourable Chinda said that there was no need to investigate the matter since the issue of impeachment was within the powers of the National Assembly.

Before his ruling, Speaker, Honourable Yakubu Dogara urged members of the House who do not attend plenaries always to do so to avoid quoting the proceedings of the chamber out of context.

He then referred the matter to the House committee on Ethics and Privileges to investigate.
