With barely weeks to the elections, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has been caught in a seeming fiendish move to relocate the collation centre of Bogoro/Dass/Tafawa Balewa Federal Constituency in Bauchi State.
Apparently not satisfied with Governor Kashim Shettima of Borno State’s admission of ‘’worsening insecurity’’ in Northern Nigeria under the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari, Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, has dared their elders to raise their voices against the ‘’endemic insecurity’’ in the region as they did during the administration of former President Goodluck Jonathan.
Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, has eulogised the late Second Republic President Shehu Aliyu Usman Shagari, declaring that he was a true democrat and an icon of transparency. The speaker spoke just as his party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) took on President Muhammadu Buhari for his conspicuous absence at the burial of highly respected former president on Saturday.
For Speaker Dogara, the election year is pregnant with a lot of uncertainties given the way the authorities have been handling the affairs of the country since 2015.
The PDP has formally welcomed the Speaker Dogara back to its fold, saying his return is a courageous response to the party’s call on compatriots to rally with it and rescue our nation.
The National Assembly (NASS) has tabled a list of demands before the Muhammadu Buhari administration, asking it to implement them, lest they invoke “the Constitutional Powers of the Parliament”.
SPEAKER of the House of Representatives Yakubu Dogara, has started to warn the electorate in Nigeria against blind voting in 2019, saying democracy is not something that is gained from the ballot box.
These resolutions followed the unanimous adoption of a motion under matters of urgent public importance moved by Rep Mark Gbillah (Benue-APC).
Members of the both chambers of the National Assembly have been spoiling for a fight over the payment, which they contended was done in breach of the constitution.
