Update: APC describe action of Lawmakers as illegal and an invasion of the State Assembly

by Golok Nanmwa, Jos 


All progressive Congress, Plateau state Chapter,  on Monday described the  appearance of 11 lawmakers in the chambers of the Plateau state house of assembly on Monday Morning as illegal and an invasion.

In a statement signed by the APC State Publicity secretary,Hon. Slyvanus Namang, the party noted with concern "how the eleven members illegally and indecorously broke into the House of Assembly Complex under the cover of darkness at very odd hour of the night".  

The APC Publicity secretary said, this remains a very disappointing and sad narrative relating to the conducts of members of a legislature which is the supposed bastion and sanctuary of our democracy.

The party further stated that the action of these Members, apart from  sending very wrong and dangerous signals which are antithetical to the  tenets of democracy, tends to portray their abuse and ignorance of the principle of legislative financial autonomy.

The party wants the Speaker Nuhu Abok who was purportedly removed last week in a controversial manner to toe the path of honour, respect and the rule of law which are hallmarks of democracy instead of what the party  calls "the embarrassing and blind desperation to reclaim the Speaker's  seat which he has since lost following his impeachment by his colleagues  last week". 

The party is also appealing to the security agencies to remain neutral and take all necessary steps to ensure law and order at the House of Assembly Complex.

The APC Plateau State advised  the embattled Speaker, Nuhu Abok Ayuba and  his colleagues to accept the reality on ground and co -operate with with  the new Speaker, Right Honourable Yakubu Sanda and settle down for  normal legislative duties instead of the unnecessary overheating of the  system.
