NASS Recess: Presidency Raises Alarm Over Imminent Shutdown of Economy
Tue, 07 Aug 2018

Abuja – Senior Special Assistant to the President on National Assembly Matters (Senate) Ita Enang has raised the alarm of an imminent shutdown of the economy if the National Assembly continues its recess.

According to Enang, apart from the virement figures presented to the National Assembly to enable the Independent National Electoral Commission(INEC) execute the 2019 general elections, the leadership of both chambers of the National Assembly needs to urgently reconvene to pass the loan facilities required by the Executive.

Both Enang and the Senate leader, Ahmed Lawan raised these fears after about three hours meeting with the Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo on Monday at the Presidential Villa.

The Presidential aide noted that what the federal government gets from the federation account was quite inconsequential compared to the financial challenges the government at the centre was grappling with currently.

He also confirmed to State House correspondents that Senate Minority Leader, Godswill Akpabio will formally join the All Progressive Congress on Wednesday.

“Just in line with what the Senate Leader had said, we are still appealing to the National Assembly to reconvene. You remember that we passed the budget with understanding that the greater amount of it would be gotten by foreign loans. Although this was approved that there would be loans, amount to be gotten was not approved.

“The Fiscal Responsibility Act requires that the President should specifically state the amount the government want to get from foreign loans and present it before the National Assembly. That letter has been presented to the National Assembly and the National Assembly has to pass that amount before the money could be obtained from foreign financing institutions.

This is what we are asking and if it didn’t happen in the next few months, we may have a complete government shutdown. What we are receiving from the federation accounts as the federal government share the capital component is not enough to sustain even the 15 or 20 percent of the budget. So there may be a complete government shutdown and I know that Nigerians are not going to like it. That is why we are still appealing.

“Now the leader of the Senate has said that they are 53, but I want to assure him that the APC have harvested more people from the PDP and other political parties. The head if the PDP in the Senate is formally joining the APC family and that will be in a big ceremony on Wednesday the 8th if August in Akwa Ibom state.

PDP Reps Uncover Security Forces’ Plots To Again, Invade NASS, Aid Leadership Ouster
Tue, 07 Aug 2018

Abuja – The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) caucus in the House of Representatives on Monday, said that it has uncovered plots by the nation’s security agencies to again, invade the National Assembly and aid the ouster of the Senate President Bukola Saraki and his Deputy, Ike Ekweremadu, by a few senators.

The lawmakers, who have continued to keep vigil in the NASS complex over this matter, in spite of their ongoing recess, rose from a meeting and issued a statement to this effect, signed by Hon. Chukwuka Onyema, the Deputy Minority Leader.

The PDP lawmakers said that the All Progressives Congress APC-led Federal government, was making unholy maneuvers to forcefully reconvene the National Assembly against all known laws and precedence, to enable them attempt their much desired impeachment of the senate leadership.

“It has our attention that there is an impending plot by a small group of senators aided by security agencies to again invaded the Senate Chamber with a view illegally reconvening the Senate Plenary.

“Ostensibly their purpose is to address what they term as urgent national issues. However, it is clear that their real purpose is an attempt to unlawfully oust the leadership of the Senate and effect a change of the Senate President and the Deputy Senate President”, the Deputy Minority Leader said.

The PDP legislators stressed that this trend of events must be strenuously resisted by all true democrats and well meaning Nigerians.

“We have over time witnessed a descent of our countries once stable democracy slide into an abyss of illiberal dictatorship. A government that has shown disdain for the rule of law, and complete disregard for the principles of separation of powers as enshrine in the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

“As elected representatives sworn to uphold the law and protect our democratic existence we unreservedly condemn this onslaught on our democratic ideals in general and parliament particular,” Onyema said.

He disclosed that the procedure for reconvening the the National Assembly was unambiguously stated in the Rules of both Houses of the National Assembly, with these Rules drawing their constitutionality from section 60 of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

“When the National Assembly stands adjourned to a fixed date, it may only be reconvened at an earlier or later date when the Leaders of the political parties in the National Assembly make a written representation to the PRESIDING OFFICERS stating that there is a need to convene plenary to attend to matters of urgent national importance. In such an event, the Presiding Officer MAY give notice to members of a date that the National Assembly is to reconvene.

“In the present instance, there has been no such notification to either the Senate President or the Speaker of the House of Representatives. Therefore any attempt to operate outside of the rules is illegal. It is symbolic of the hideous excesses of this Governments attempt to wither and destroy the institution of parliament and the bastion of our democracy.”
