JUST IN: Breakdown Of National Assembly Budget | Independent Newspapers  Nigeria

Lawmakers fumes over refusal of IGP, CBN Gov, NSA and others to appear before NASS, Saying “They are Taking us for Granted”

A member of the House of Representatives, Isiaka Ibrahim has expressed his disappointment over the refusal of heads

of government agencies to appear before theHouse adhoc committee investigating the management of recovered loots.

Ibrahim also stated that the repeated absence of heads of agencies like CBN Governor, Godwin Emefiele

the Inspector General Of Police, Usman Alkali Baba; the National Security Adviser, Babagana Monguno; and the Director-General of Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA),

 is disrespectful to the National Assembly.

The adhoc committee member also said that lawmakers have no business being in the parliament if agencies of government who are creations of the parliament refuse to respect the institution that created them.

Ibrahim said; 

“These are those that have gone through the Senate for confirmation. So, I am worried, when they are invited and the National Assembly is taken for granted in a case like this.

“It calls for serious concern. I want to appeal that this should not end here.

If it amounts to raising it on the floor of the House, we should shut down the National Assembly if the agencies of

government are not going to respect us by our invitation then we don’t need to be here.”
