Reps probes Kazaure, Jibrin over Buhari
The House of Representatives has directed the investigation of Muhammed Kazaure for daring to reveal the collection of signatures for the impeachment of President Muhammadu Buhari,
The House of Representatives resolved to investigate Kazaure on Wednesday over his comments on an alleged plot to impeach Buhari.
The lawmaker was said to have accused some lawmakers of collecting signatures from their colleagues.
He reportedly made the allegation on Tuesday during an interview with reporters in Abuja, shortly after the emergency joint executive session of the National Assembly.
Kazaure’s colleagues, Nicholas Ossai and Kingsley Chinda, told the House during Wednesday’s plenary that the lawmaker accused them of gathering signatures to impeach the president.
He was consequently directed to appear before the House Committee on Rights and Privileges for questioning.
Meanwhile, the House has also resolved to investigate another member, Abdulmumin Jibrin, for allegedly accusing some lawmakers of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) of planning to impeach the President.
Shortly after the joint session of the National Assembly on Tuesday in Abuja, Mr Jibrin issued a statement on behalf of lawmakers under the aegis of the Parliamentary Support Group of the Senate and House of Representatives.
In the statement, he faulted the resolutions of the lawmakers and asked the National Assembly leadership to remove the log in its own eyes before removing the speck in the eye of the President.
The lawmaker, who represents Bebeji/Kiru Federal Constituency of Kano, is being probed barely three months after he returned from a suspension which lasted for 17 months.
A Federal High Court has nullified the suspension as illegal and unconstitutional.
