“Use your Voter’s Cards as Weapons”- the Chairman House Committee on Youth Development charged the Nigerian Youths ahead of her Public Lectures.

The Chairman Federal House of Representatives Committee for Youth Development, Rt. Hon. Adaramodu Raphael Adeyemi MHR charged Nigerian Youth to use their voters’ cards as a major means of protest henceforth to ensure their voices and quest are heard and enforced.

He made this call while receiving the leadership of Nigerian Youth Political Agenda (NYPA) Comrade Kasar Moses Teryima, the Executive Director, accompanied by Comr. Abdulmumini Tijjani Director Media and Publicity and Comr. Ademola Adeyemi Director Research, Data and Statistics on a courtesy visit to discuss the maiden edition of NYPA public Lecture Series, Honors and Prayer Summit for our dear Country Nigeria.

Hon. Adaramodu saluted the courage of patriotic Nigerian Youth who initiated the right cause of #endSARS, however, he regretted the inability of the Youth to continually keep the good conduct and rules of protest rather diving into looting individual properties and destroying public facilities that even abinitio aren’t enough to serve the country, therefore, defitting the whole aim of the agitation.

Arms Procurement Investigation: “Issues of arms procurement were done by specific individuals, call these individuals to explain to you ” – COAS Ibrahim Attahiru tells House of Reps members

Published

on


A dramatic scene was recorded today April 13 after the Chief of Army Staff Lieutenant General Ibrahim Attahiru appeared before House of Representatives ad-hoc committee on arms and ammunition as part of the investigation into arms purchase by the military.


Attahiru refused to speak on arms procurement after presenting a document to the committee.


According to the COAS, he just resumed office and the issues surrounding the procurement of arms should be answered by the “specific individuals” who initiated the purchase.


He said;


“The submission before you speaks to the report before you. It is an executive summary. It is very self-explanatory to the extent that it has been pluralised. When you demanded this report, you stated a specific period for which you wanted it.

“You may wish to recall that the Chief of Army Staff took over the mantle of leadership barely two months ago.

“The period for which you want this report having been summarised in the executive summary explained whatever details you require.

“Issues of arms procurement that you so demand to know were done by specific individuals, I will rather you call these individuals to explain to you very specific issues the general explanation is contained in this report.”


A member of the committee, Ejiro Ogene had also faulted the COAS explanation for not appearing before the committee earlier.


Ogene said;


“When we ask you to come, the people are the ones speaking, sovereignty lies in the people; if we see it like this, things will be different.

“I expect that the COAS tenders an apology, not an explanation; you are serving the people and they are as your employer.”


Firing back at him, Attahiru insisted that his explanation serves as an apology. He said;


“When you say I offered an explanation, it is as good as an apology. It only tells you the reasons why I wasn’t here and the reasons are pungent enough.”


Following the rising tension at the proceeding, Chairman of the Committee Olaide Akinremi ruled that the hearing goes into a closed-door meeting and the media were asked to leave the hearing.
