Water Resources Bill: Ignore reports on impeachment of Gbajabiamila-Northern lawmakers

Posted by on July 26, 2022 0

Amid the controversy on the water resources bill, the Chairman of the Northern Caucus in the House of Representatives, Sarki Musa Ardar has dismissed reports that northern lawmakers are moving to impeach Speaker Femi Gbajabiamila on the controversial water bill.

Arda, a lawmaker from Katsina State, raised a point of order on Tuesday on the floor of the House.

He said the report on Sahara Reporters that the lawmakers led by him concluded plans to smuggle in the bill during the holiday and to impeach Speaker Femi Gbajabiamila is not true.

It would be recalled that the water resources bill has become very controversial. Many have argued that the bill is an attempt by the federal government to grab more power from the states.

Also speaking on the report, the Chairman of the House Committee on Rules and Business, Hassan Fulata from Jigawa State also dismissed the report and described the newspaper as an “imperialist backed medium”.

He said the lawmakers will not be forced to take a decision. He added that the northern lawmakers are fully behind Mr Gbajabimaila who is currently outside the country.

The minority leader, Ndudi Elumelu also spoke against the report, describing it as stupid.

In his ruling, the Deputy Speaker, Ahmed Wase, who presided over plenary said the House must avoid needless distraction.

To further show solidarity with Gbajabiamila, the Majority Leader, the Minority Leader, and other lawmakers briefed journalists and affirmed their support for the Speaker.
