Reps Reject President Buhari’s Executive Order by vondaman: 4:18pm On Jul 11
Members of the House of Representatives at Wednesday plenary shut down President Muhammad Buhari’s Executive Order by a unanimous voice vote.

Buhari had last week Thursday signed an Executive Order to improve his administration’s fight against corruption.
The Order is to give his government power to confiscate stolen assets of suspected individuals believed to have richly corrupted themselves via public funds.

However, contributing to a motion sponsored by 25 persons and moved by Hon. Nicholas Ossai (Delta State) on the issue, the lawmakers said that the Order was against the tenets of democracy.
According to the House, the President cannot approbate and reprobate unilaterally without the inputs of the legislature and the judiciary which made up the pillars of democracy in the country.
They also said it is the usurpation of legislative powers constitutionally inherent in the National Assembly to make laws for the country

Corruption is as old as the existence of man.Everyone have the right to acquire wealth/property but It's left for government to prove in a competent court of law that such were illegally acquired & not via executive fiat.

Any wonder the clueless government keep losing even high profile corruption cases they could have easily bootstrapped Meanwhile that is how tyrannts behave-very lawless.

With that Executive Order, PMB should just be given his uniform back and let him throw the Agbada away.

We do not need strong men any longer but strong institutions .

Executive order of this nature in the hands of a known tyrant who has zero regard for the rights of others , whose biased judgment is well documented, who has no regard for the constitution , and an Islamic fundamentalist is a no no.


Orders of this nature can only stand in a country where institutions are not owned by anyone or by any region but by the people.

The truth remains that even the members of the house of the Reps kicking against it is purely a self serving purpose even though they are pretending to be the harbinger of good democracy.

They are simply afraid that Buhari will use it to strip them off of their ill gotten wealth - Give them immunity before and after office over that executive order and see them vote without asking questions about the main content

Every country has one or two executive orders to maintain normalcy but such order in the hands of a mad man is a big mistake because he has proven time without numbers that he has zero restpect for the other two arms of the Government especially the Judiciary.

To bring it down to your level.

The House members aren't kicking against it because they love you so much but they are covering their own ass, because their hands are so dirty.

Bottom line is : Nigeria is fantastically corrupt that any idea to kill corruption won't breath because corruption is part of our national life and we all are involved.

Low IQ is the problem in this country ..what makes You think I didn't understand what you wrote at first? There is a reason why we have proscribed processes on how to get properties forfeited all over the world whether or not house of rep are trying to protect their loot doesn't change the fact that the executive order is lawless and a breach of our laws ... we have laws and processes for reason and not for sentiments.

what is your business with looted funds are you a beneficiary of corrupt politicians
How does stolen funds been froozen affect your day to day activities??
Since nigeria politicans have been looting treasury what has the masses gained from them
If they actually care about democracy what have they achieved for their consituency since they were elected abi democracy is not about good governance
The day i catch one of you id**ts supporting people opressing the masses God knows your life will never remain the same.
If buhari is doing one sided corruption fight so be it.
If pdp during their useless 16 years was dealing with opposition stealing from their people corruption wouldnt have grown up to this extent .

That nonsense decree called "executive order" will never stand

Buhari is a tyrant!

The reasons fight against corruption is failing is weak prosecution and insincerity on the part of government. We have not yet seen any streamlined budget yet from this government that should focus on reducing waste and yet they claim to be fighting corruption!
