There’s A Gang-up To Kill South-east Commission Bill – Deputy Minority Leader by fabre4: 9:35pm On Jun 01, 2017
THE DEPUTY MINORITY LEADER OF THE FEDERAL HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES, HAS OPENED UP ON THE ROWDY SESSION AND PROTEST BY LAWMAKERS MAINLY FROM THE SOUTH-EAST TODAY DURING PLENARY.


We reported earlier today that some members of the Federal House of Representatives, mainly from the South-East were involved in massive protest inside the national assembly chambers.
It was learnt that their anger is over the withdrawal of a bill seeking to create a South-East Development Commission. The house rejected the bill after it was put to a voice vote by Yakubu Dogara, the speaker.
While speaking with a journalists, the deputy minority leader of the house of representatives, Chukwuka Onyema, alleged that there was a gang up to kill the bill seeking to establish the South-East Development Commission.


Onyema, who sponsored the bill, had stormed out of the chamber, alongside some south-east lawmakers, after the bill was put aside, and also threatened to relinquish his position.


When asked if he would keep to his word and resign, the angry Onyema said: “I have not done it, wait for a formal thing,” adding that it was obvious that some lawmakers ganged up to “kill” the bill.
The lawmaker explained that the bill was mainly for developmental purposes of the south-east region, saying it had become clear that the south-east is being marginalised.


“Two things happened, it was obvious that there was a gang up to kill this bill. People that are supposed to be fasting came back and shouted ‘nay’,” he said.


“We all heard it and still the presiding officer gave it to the ‘nays’. This bill does not affect anybody in any way. This is something that is for developmental purposes. Why are we killing it? And we are talking about marginalisation, that we are not marginalised? We are marginalised, it is obvious that we are being marginalised.
“By Tuesday, you will hear what you want to hear.”

SE actively supported the killing of Special Status Bill for Lagos.

They should calm down and take a chill bottle of coca cola

See what the Sons of Hatred wrote on this thread that has to with the rejection of Special Status Bill for Lagos State https://www.nairaland.com/3389862/senate-rejects-tinubus-bill-seeking

They are bunch of emotional babies and tantrum whinners.

Before Nigeria crashes, we would have taken a fair share of our entitlement. Afterwards, if you guys like you can burn down your part of the country, it will not be none of our business.

The issue is that people will tell us to hold our leaders responsible, these leaders have proposed something that will at least make sure all federal roads are built in Igboland, they(others) shouted it down.

There is no fair dealing in Nigeria, none at all.

People should be a little diplomatic . Igbos are screaming marginalization round the world , they bring bill for South east development, you kill it. You plan to borrow money for railways across the country and you exclude only South east. Any thing for south east is cancelled .. Believe it or not, you're giving the world reasons to believe the Biafran agitators stories.

My question to these people that supposed to be fasting is;

1)Why did you say "No" to the development of south East?.

2) Is it your personal money that will be used for this project?.

3) Can you honestly tell me with facts what your states contributes to the project Nigeria positively more than these SE states?.

Senator Hope Uzodima from Imo State said: “If we approve a bill like this, states like Zamfara, Imo, Enugu and others will begin to ask for support and assistance. I think we should look at the assets in Lagos State and see how the Federal Government can assist Lagos state to augment what it is doing.”

Very soon, the SE senators will propose a referendum bill to decide the fate of all oppressed SS/SE tribes who seek Biafra


By then, I will observe the reaction of unity beggars on this platform to the proposed referendum bill to decide the fate of all Biafrans

It is God that has spurred up the leaders to proposed that bill which is one of the final straws to open their eyes to the hopelessness of One Nigeria

What assets do South east have? How many good federal roads, since the war ended how many concrete projects have been carried to rehabilitate the south east. I think the truth is that deep down the mind of this politicians they don't want anything good for any other region, that isn't the north. But it's fine election is by the corner the nepotistic children of Usman Dan fodio must not be annoyed.

All the SE/SS senators should walk out of the senate for weeks and visit Donald Trump, other world leaders, International agencies and news media to explain this evil to the world

If this is done, the rest of the world will intervene concerning Biafra as an alternative since it is clear that they don't want progress in the SE/SS


My advice is for the senators of SE/SS to abandoned the chambers and do all those things listed above

I watched the rowdy session on Channels TV. Senators from the south are the greatest mumu and fools I have ever seen in my life.

Mumu Southern senators voted in favor of the North East Development Commission bill. 3% of revenues generated from the South West, South South and South East will be used to re-develop the NE. Now, it was time for the Northern senators to return the favor, they all voted against the South East Development Bill.

I wrote this not because I care about the SE but I know similar thing would have occur if it was a SW development bill. The special status bill for Lagos state that was shot down comes to mind.

North will continue to fccckk all of us.

It's even funny to think yeeboes backed and provided massive support for Dogara against "Tinubu's candidate" - Gbaja...Dogara has just fcccked his SE supporters.
That's what you get when you cut your nose to spite your face. They think they're spiting Yoruba

You are right but what does the SE need a Development commission for? They should rather propose roads that needs to be fixed by the FG. At the moment only Niger delta and North east deserves a development commission reasons we all know.

Alot of SE senators voted down the Lagos special status bill proposed, did the Yoruba people cry of marginalization?

Abeg they should cry me a river.
