Politics / Police Set To Restore Tambuwal’s Security Aides by Clerverly: 2:46pm
Police set to restore Tambuwal’s security aides

The policemen controversially withdrawn from Aminu Tambuwal, speaker of the house of representatives, will be restored on Friday, TheCable understands.

Suleiman Abba, the acting inspector-general of police, ordered the withdrawal of the security aides on Thursday, citing Tambuwal’s defection from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to All Progressives Congress (APC) as reason.

The action had been widely condemned as politically motivated since the police are not empowered to interpret a constitutional matter.

Curiously, the Department of State Services (DSS) and the Civil Defence Corps did not withdraw their men.

A presidency source told TheCable on Friday that the acting IG “clearly acted on bad legal advice in taking the decision”.

He said President Goodluck Jonathan, who has been accused by the APC of giving the order to withdraw the police officers, will convene a meeting on Friday to resolve the impasse.

Presidency is yet to make an official pronouncement on the development despite all fingers pointing in the direction of Jonathan.

“The president believes in the rule of law and it is becoming glaring that the police did not get good legal advice in taking the decision they took. If the president was the one that ordered it, as claimed, why would he not also order DSS and civil defence to withdraw their men?” he asked.

However, it is still considered “highly improbable” that the police would withdraw the security aides of Nigeria’s No. 4 citizen without the knowledge of the president.

Meanwhile, APC senators plan to make it difficult for the confirmation of the appointment of Abba as IG.

Abba, appointed in acting capacity in August, needs to be confirmed by the senate.

Angered by the Tambuwal saga, leading APC senators have vowed to block Abba’s confirmation, TheCable was told.

But his confirmation requires only a simple a majority or a voice vote, and the APC does not have the numbers in the upper chamber of the national assembly.

Although defections are now taking place on almost weekly basis, the PDP had 65 of the 109 senators as at the last count.

I can sense an air of resignation

The reality of the provisions of the constitution is beginning to set in!

In a serious society this matter won't come to this! Tambuwal will know to do the needful and resign. APC would have even made his resignation from office as pre-requisite for his defection!

The fact that APC will rather try to pull a fast one on the constitution really calls for reflection! The party of change and progress simply have no class!!!! And can't respect the rule of law!!!!

Really why is APC looking for minority leadership in the a House through the back door!!!!!

We shall know, when the house reconvenes on the 3rd of December! Jonathan is a trainee president.

Really tough on the PDP. The speaker's defection hurts them to the bonemarrow. I feel the cries and moans of residence JonaTAN and his minions of saTAN internet goons.

Atiku defected to then ACN and still maintained his seat as the vice president. PDP started the poaching business now the net of the opposition has caught a big fish they are crying blue murder.

Nothing and no one can remove Tambuwal as speaker. PDPigs can sure go to hell.

Trust me by the time the house reconvenes on the 3rd of December, more members would follow suit!

The fact is that the otuoke drunkard is so afraid of losing to the people's General in next year's election, that he employs Fayose and wike thuggery style of politics in fighting any perceived opponent.

Unfortunately for him, Nigerians are so determined and resolute in their resolve to sending him back to otuoke with drums of Kai Kai, cos he is unfit to preside over even a council ward!

Sir, I am very sure that it wasn't budgeted for. If it was, it would have reflected in the budget.
The budget is a public document and not a secret one. Beside, the Government house was alleged to deduct the monies from their allocation. I challenge the first lady to bring out the cheques that was signed by the Chairmen and other supporting document. Boss this is pure fraud

Have you seen the budget? If yes, can we share it? If No, why are you sounding so confident?

The government was "alleged" by who? Wike?

You want the First to bring out the Cheque? As demanded by Barcanista, EFCC, Police or Wike?

This is pure fraud? because Wike and Obuah said so?

Barcanista, I expected you to wait for reaction from the First Lady before passing judgment as informed mind!

Hypocrisy is when a south-south guy criticize Ameachi for joining APC.
But praise Bafarawa & Shekarau for joining PDP!

Hypocrisy is when PDP goes to court to stop PDP legislators defecting to AP
But celebrate when APC legislators decamp to PDP.

Hypocrisy is when the senate president refused to read Saraki & cos defection letter to APC
But was quick to read Chukwumerije's defection letter to PDP!

Hypocrisy is when PDP celebrate the defection of gov Theodore Orji & Ohakim to PDP
But go to court to stop kwankwaso & co from defecting to APC !

Hypocrisy is when Oghiadomhe is sacked, to go & pursue his governorship ambition &
Nyisom Wike is left to double as minister of education & military administrator of River state.

Hypocrisy is when Bashir Argungu writes against GEJ and is called tribalistic and
Edwin clerk's utterances called freedom of speech.

Hypocrisy is when Stella Oduah is sacked for corruption charges that amount to 255million & Diezani Allison Madueke is left as minister with corruption charges amounting to $20billion!

Hypocrisy is when PDP say 16 is > than 19 & 5 is > than 26!... For how long will this continue?

justitiaomnibus:
What is the OP saying? The house is governed 1st by the constitution and secondly by the "Rules of the National Assembly".
Even the courts of the Land up to the supreme court have rules that guides their modus operandi.

It is a conventional rule the world over That a party with majority members in parliament produces the leadership of the house or the even the prime minister as the case may be.

The National Assembly has its rules and procedures because the constitution you quoted also gives the house power to make rules of conduct, procedure and such rule when passed is a law subject to the constitution.

It is the rule of the house that a party with majority members in the parliarment produces the leadership of the house.
How can minority preside over majority?

Why did Tinubu and his APC cohorts have to look for a stooge and pupet in the PDP to contest the leadership of the house?

Tambuwal won Mulikat Akande because all CAN house members voted him and the PDP members from the core north who have always been anti-GEJ voted him. CPC members voted him too. But the fact was that he contested for that position because he was in the PDP. He wouldn't have the locus to stand Election for speaker of the house if he were not in PDP which had and still has the Mojority in the house.

I bet you. Tambuwals speakership can only last as long as the recess last. As soon as the house resumes, he is a goner. He knows that too so he played a fast one asking that the motion for adjournment be moved b4 he told the house about his defection.

And if the polity is overheated by reason of his indiscretion, woe betide any body tha calls JONATHAN.

Let's watch and see.

What's this one saying?

Sibabasibaba1:

------------------------------------------------------++
APGA has two factions: Umeh and Maxi Okwu. There case has been in court for over a year now. At a time, Okwu won in the high court but Umeh later won at the Appeal Court. So, you can't use APGA as an example.

There are no two factions in Ondo. If there are name the chairmen of the factions. The party has internal issues in Ondo but no other faction has emerged until the dissolution. Now, they are engaged in horse-trading.

Now, for a faction to be proved it has to be clear-cut, else people will be leaving there parties every day claiming factions. The courts saw through this, hence they refuse to equate Lar's contrived faction in 2006 and the newPDP in 2013 to factions.

So, Tambuwal CANNOT prove that there is a faction in Sokoto PDP. He knows it. But as I said earlier, he is favoured by time.

Meanwhile, is this thread not about how PDP is so dumb and does not understand the Constitution? That we are arguing now about another section of the Constitution that the IP deliberately refused to cite has put a lie to the impression he tried to create.

The thread is about the office of the Speaker not about Tambuwal as a member of house of rep! Before now, many people believed you can only become a speaker, if your party had the majority of Members in the house, whereas as the constitution didn't say so.

Did you also read where, Oliseh Metuh-the PDP spokesman called for the resignation of Tambuwal citing the minority status of his new party?

Politics / Tambuwal:What The 1999 Nigerian Constitution Says About The Office Of Thespeaker by Clerverly: 11:38pm On Oct 28
I read an article somewhere, where Oliseh Metuh of PDP, called for the resignation of Hon. Tambuwal for ditching a party on whose majority he rose to the office of the speaker house of Representative.

In his exact words: “After a thorough consideration of the matter, the NWC came to a conclusion that the Hon. Speaker, as a responsible elected officer, knows full well what is needful and honourable of him since his new party is in the minority [in the House]” he said.

I have also read some comments offline and online, when some ignorant/paid commentators have started insinuating that Hon Tambuwal May lose his office for simply not fulfilling the requirements of the law as regards the position of speaker.

It is very unfortunate that some Nigerians including public office holders are too lazy, to read the elementary sections of our Constitution, some of which are self explanatory.

Now, let us examine what Chapter V, Part 1 (Composition Of National Assembly) sections 47 -50 of the Constitution Of The Federal Republic Of Nigeria holds:


There shall be a National Assembly for the Federation which shall consist of a Senate and a House of Representatives.

48. The Senate shall consist of three Senators from each State and one from the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.

49. Subject to the provisions of this Constitution, the House of Representatives shall consist of three hundred and sixty members representing constituencies of nearly equal population as far as possible, provided that no constituency shall fall within more than one State.

50. (1) There shall be:-

(a) a President and a Deputy President of the Senate, who shall be elected by the members of that House from among themselves; and

(b) a Speaker and a Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, who shall be elected by the members of that House from among themselves.

(2) The President or Deputy President of the Senate or the Speaker or Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives shall vacate his office -

(a) if he ceases to be a member of the Senate or of the House of Representatives, as the case may be, otherwise than by reason of a dissolution of the Senate or the House of Representatives; or

(b) when the House of which he was a member first sits after any dissolution of that House; or

(c) if he is removed from office by a resolution of the Senate or of the House of Representatives, as the case may be, by the votes of not less than two-thirds majority of the members of that House.

So where did PDP find the supposedly "loophole" or authority in law, in asking Hon. Tambuwal to resign? The only option left for them, is to rally their members and see if they can muster the required number when plenary resumes in decemeber, in order to satisfy Section 50, subsection 2 C as highlighted above.

Anything else is calling for anarchy!
