Odinkalu Raises Alarm Over Composition Of 9th NASS Leadership


A former chairman of the National Human Rights Commission [NHRC], Professor Chidi Odinkalu has expressed worries over the possible composition of the ninth National Assembly.

Professor Odinkalu was reacting to a media interview held by Ms. Kadaria Ahmed with Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila wherein Ms. Ahmed raised questions on his character and integrity to lead the House of Representatives.

It could be recalled that the ruling All Progressives Congress [APC], during its last meeting ahead of the election of the leadership of the ninth Assembly has endorsed Senator Ahmad Lawan as the Senate President.

The party also endorsed Senator Ovie Omo-Agege as the Deputy Senate President.

In the Green Chamber, the party endorsed Hon. Gbajabiamila as the Speaker, with Hon. Idris Ahmed Wase as the Deputy.

Reacting to the composition, Prof. Odinkalu, on his Twitter handle, expressed unease at the characters endorsed by the ruling party for the plum job.

He tweeted: “As the 9th Parliament of @nassnigeria convenes in 36 hrs, the party of “Integrity” gets set to install as Speaker of @HouseNGR, a man who was disbarred for stealing client’s money; & as Deputy President of @NGRSenate, another who stole the Mace of the Senate!

“#NextLevelThings,”  he taunted the APC slogan.

Gbajabiamila was nailed on cases of a prior conviction, dishonesty, identity theft, different birth dates, and most recently, perjury.

On his part, the mediasphere was awash last year with news of how Senator Omo-Agege led a band of thugs and whisked away the Mace, a symbol of authority in the Red Chamber.

The duo were endorsed by their party to play leadership role in the ninth National Assembly which is due to be inaugurated tomorrow, June 11, 2019.
