Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila is fighting the battle of his life to escape the impeachment gale hovering around him as 160 aggrieved lawmakers sign notice

Despite allegedly doling out $10,000 each to members of the House of the concluding 9th Assembly, fear of the unknown has prevented the Speaker from convening plenary sessions.

Before releasing the $10,000 gratification, not less than one hundred and sixty members were alleged to have signed his impeachment notice.

In furtherance to his continued battle for survival, the Speaker Gbajabiamila on sensing the mood of the members when the House convened Wednesday morning, 17th May 2023 abruptly adjourned indefinitely. CONTINUE READING…

His Deputy, Hon. Ahmed Idris Wase was even raising his hand to speak when he hurriedly hit the gavel and adjourned the Plenary, a development which further infuriated members.

Impeccable sources equally hinted that the members were moving against Gbajabiamila over sundry charges of corruption.

The leadership of the 9th Assembly is further being accused of diverting a whooping sum of N4 billion meant for the training of legislative aides for the past four years.

The National Assembly budget every year provides for the quarterly training of aides, the sum of N250 million which amounts to a billion naira annually.

Sources, however, revealed that for the past four years now, no single training has been allegedly conducted for the aides. So, members are asking questions about the money which are usually budgeted for the capacity building of their support staff.

Questions are also being asked about the ongoing projects, which were being executed to the detriment of the uncompleted ones started by the previous leadership of the National Assembly.

Apart from the leaderships being accused of over invoicing the contracts, the members are also questioning the rationale behind embarking on new projects when the old ones inherited from the previous leaderships were yet to be completed.

The leaderships of the 8th Assembly, began the construction of quarters for the principal officers of the legislature which are yet to be delivered.

The projects causing the agitations are, the Mosque, the library block, the National Assembly Service Commission, (NASCOM) building, the gates and gate houses and the barricading of the stays with transparent glasses.
