The National Assembly rose from its Joint Executive Session Tuesday with resolutions among which is to hold the President, Muhammadu Buhari, accountable for the actions of his appointees as well as a vote of confidence in the leadership of the Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki, Speaker Yakubu Dogara and other principal officers of the National Assembly.
The meeting was called as a fall out of the public invitation to Senate President by the Idris Ibrahim led Nigeria Police Force, which was later commuted to written explanation. The invitation was purportedly to answer questions as regards his indictment by five gang leaders as the sponsor of the April 5, 2018 Offa robberies which claimed the lives of 33 innocent citizens including pregnant women and nine policemen.
Saraki has since denied involvement.
The session maintained the vote of no confidence earlier passed on the Inspector General of Police, Idris Ibrahim, adding among other things that there must be strict adherence to the rule of law and protection of for all citizens by the president and his appointees.
