I Can't Recognize Tambuwal as the Speaker; says IG of Police

 

The funny thing about this saga is that the Inspector General of Police is recognizing the Speaker of Ondo State House of Assembly after he decamped to PDP but he can't recognize Aminu Tambuwal?

IGP Suleiman Abba was adamant on Wednesday, refusing to recognise the Speaker of the House of Reps, Rt. Hon. Aminu Tambuwal, as the speaker. The IG simply addressed him as “Alhaji Aminu Tambuwal”, a title that angered members of the House Committee on Police Affairs.

The controversial IG insisted that it would be “subjudice” for him to address Tambuwal as speaker or any of the matters relating to him so long as such a matter was in court.

Chairman of the House committee, Hon. Usman Bello-Kurmo, asked him a direct question: “Is Aminu Waziri-Tambuwal the Speaker of the House of Representatives or not?”

A bit of sad news for me yesterday. The University of Jos has been shut down indefinitely after a protest by students over hike in fees turned violent. The protest started yesterday morning with students holding university administrators hostage in their offices.

The University Registrar, Jully Dandam, after a hurriedly convened management meeting, announced the institution will remain closed till further notice.
