Reps Summon Buhari, Ask Him To Declare Killer-Herdsmen Terrorists

By on April 25, 2018

Reps resolve to suspend plenary for 3 days in protest say President has failed Nigerians on Section 14 of 1999 Constitution.

Ask President to declare all killer-herdsmen as terrorists.

Pass vote of no confidence on all service chiefs, security advisers.

In an unusual daring move, the House of Representatives at Wednesday plenary summoned President Muhammadu Buhari to make explanations on why the wave of insecurity has persisted across the nation.

The members also resolve to suspend plenary for 3 consecutive days to protest the killing of Nigerians. The House also passed a vote of no confidence in all the Service Chiefs and all security advisers to the President while asking the president to declare all killer herdsmen as terrorists.

These resolutions followed a motion on the incessant killings in Benue State especially the last one that claimed the lives of two Reverend fathers on Tuesday. The House resolved that in the light of Section 14 of the 1999 Constitution which places the security and lives of the Nigerian people as the priorities of government, the president has failed.

There is no need asking the president to find a way out and curtain the incessant killings in Benue and other parts of the country. The president had only condemned those acts without taking appropriate steps to combat and bring and end to these killings.

Earlier this month the green chamber has asked the president to relieve his service chiefs of their positions upon failing to discharged their duties effectively.

Could the vote of no confidence passed by the green chamber on the President’s advisers take into cognizance? What would be their fate?

We will wait to see the outcome as reactions pounds out especially from the presidency.
