Nigerian Senate: Trouble As PDP Senators Walkout Over Lawan's Dismissal Of Motion On Insecurity

The Daily Crucible | Thursday, July 28, 2022

There is trouble in the Senate. Aggrieved and disappointed at Senate President, Ahmad Lawan’s, handling of a motion raised on the unprecedented insecurity in the country, Senators elected on the ticket of the Peoples Democratic Party, staged a walk-out.

The PDP Lawmakers walked out following Lawan’s dismissal of Minority Leader, Phillip Aduda’s motion on insecurity.

According to The Source report, Senate President Lawan failed to allow Senator Aduda, representing the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Senatorial District to present his motion on security.

Lawan said Aduda did not speak to him about the motion as required by their rules. As the Senators walked out, they chanted: “All we are saying, Buhari must go.”

It would be recalled that a couple of  days ago, the Federal Ministry of Education on Monday ordered the immediate closure of the Federal Government College located in Kwali Area Council of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.

Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu who gave the directive said the closure became necessary following a security breach on Sheda and Lambata Villages, suburbs of Kwali Area Council, which also threatened FGC Kwali.

According to the Minister, the timely intervention of Security Agencies saved the situation.

Adamu Adamu also directed that arrangements should be made for final year students to conclude their NECO examinations.

The Minister also directed Principals of Unity Colleges across the country to liaise with Security Agencies within their jurisdictions in order to forestall any security breach in  schools.

Earlier, the Management of the College, had asked parents to evacuate their wards from the school over the fear of attack by terrorists, which has caused panic among the management, staff, students and parents of the school.

This was followed by the threat by terrorists to kidnap President Muhammadu Buhari and Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai.

And, on Friday, terrorists ambushed a group of officers and soldiers of the elite Guards Brigade in Abuja. They killed two officers – a Captain and a Lieutenant – as well as eight soldiers.
