@POLITICSNGR

The entire Benue state assembly premises was taken over by security personnel(Police officers) who barred members from reconvening to deliberate on issues of urgent state importance earlier today.

PoliticsNGR learnt that Ad hoc committee chairman on publicity Rt.Hon. Paul Biam said no cogent reason had been given by the most senior security personnel as to why the assembly was besieged by the security except that he had superior orders from above to take charge.

Hon. Biam maintained that as law-abiding citizens they would not resort to resisting the security but rather search for an alternative venue to meet as they were duty bound by the constitution to sit at any location to do their legislative business.

While the recently impeached speaker Terkimbi Ikyange still maintains he remains speaker the ad hoc committee chairman on publicity said the issue of the dissolution of the assembly's previous leadership is certainly not in contention.

On the twenty-fourth of July, a vote of no confidence was passed on the previous leadership which led to their dissolution in which new leaders were elected.

Good One From The Police..

How can some group of renegades, empowered by the state governor, broke into the house of Assembly, which was duly adjourned for recess by the Speaker and purportedly impeach him..

If you support the rascality by the governor on this just know that:

That APC senators could with backing of the police break into the National Assembly and impeach Saraki without recourse to the recess.

That APC house of Assembly members in Ekiti State, could as well break into the Assembly and impeach the speaker without recourse to the adjournment duly carried out by the speaker.

A president that swore to protect our constitution is there, weak, somewhere in Aso rock.

His cabal and foot soldiers are busy insulting our institutions and bastardizing our democracy.

Posterity will not be kind to PMB and his cronies.

Buhari will never relinquish power easily, when he loses in 2019. His a desperate old fool that wants to cling to power by all means. The next news u will hear is the Governor of Benue has been impeached,just because he decided to move on with his people. Buhari is d real devil's advocate!

Seriously...?

See house of assembly sef undecided E be like Ugwukpa community grammar school principal office.

I see few police elders and lots of Makurdi vigilante crew. Where're the police "men"?

Seriously, I thought a "state" of emergency was the army call.

When you already have two speakers in one house assembly and the police perceived there could be a crisis. Is it bad as they have come to guard and curb any looming violent?

Is it just possible for two drivers to drive one car?

In a news like this, the only thing you can expect from resident zombies is OK.
One thing is certain, this executive impunity coming from Abuja and supported by Zombies will one day turn against them. Just as the HOR majority leader once hailed Tambuwa and today cries foul for the same thing he hailed in 2014 being meted out to his party in 2018 so shall it be to Zombies all over this country at the due time.

Posterity will ever be kindest to PMB. We have rogues lawmakers who don't care a hoot about you as ordinary Nigerian.

Government is about intervention, regulation and protection. Government/Security apparatus will not sit and watch a group of people turn the country into theatre of war for their selfish interest.
