Mild Crisis In House Of Reps As Gbajabiamila Stops Elumelu’s #PantamiResign Campaign – Naijanewsdirect

There was a mild crisis in the House of Representatives after the Speaker of the house Femi Gbajabiamila, blocked a motion by Minority leader Ndudi Elumelu.

Elumelu, on Wednesday had urged the House to demand resignation or sack of the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Isa Pantami, for once backing activities of Jihadist leaders and deadly Islamic sects.

At the plenary on Wednesday, Elumelu raised a point of order to demand that the House acts on the issue. He particularly demanded the minister’s resignation or sack.

Recall, Pantami has been under fire for once preaching the violent cause of extremist Islamist sects and Jihadist narratives of al-Qaeda and the Taliban before he became a minister in the cabinet of the President Muhammadu Buhari.


The Speaker, Femi Gbajabiamila, overruled the Minority Leader, noting that Elumelu came under the matter and the matter being raised had nothing to do with his privilege as a lawmaker making the plenary to move to other items on the House’ agenda.
