Kwara youths threaten to recall Saraki

Date: 2017-07-10

The Kwara Youth Stakeholders Forum (KYSF) has threatened to recall Senate President Bukola Saraki over the continuous face-off between the National Assembly and the Federal Government.

In a statement by its president, Charles Olufemi Folayan, the group regretted that the rancour was coming from stalwarts of same political party.

Labelling Saraki's stewardship as unimpressive, KYSF worries that bills of public interest such as Local Government Autonomy Bill, Audit Bill including first-line charge for Auditor General for the Federation, Bill for Special Anti corruption Court, among others were yet to receive adequate attention from the upper chamber of the National Assembly.

The statement reads: "We are disturbed by the frequent face-off between the Senate and the executive arm of government which is affecting the whole nation and requires the attention of all Nigerians, considering its adverse effect on the masses.

"We are cognisant of the separation of powers in a democratic setting, but it is shocking to see the legislative and executive arms of government formed by the same political party playing opposition between themselves in the name of separation of power."

Meanwhile, the suspended member representing Bebeji/Kiru Federal Constituency of Kano State in the House of Representatives, Abdulmumini Jibrin Kofa, is at the verge of losing his representation at the lower chamber.

Hundreds of constituents are also collecting signatures to commence his recall.

One of the arrowheads, Salele Bushasha during a rally at Agric Show Ground in Bebeji Local Council of the state, said: " We have compiled all necessary documents and we are heading to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on the 30th of this month to officially kick-start the process."

He hinged their decision on the lawmaker's alleged disrespect to the leaderships of the All Progressives Congress and National Assembly.

"Instead of him to go back and beg for his reinstatement at the House, he leaves our representation as vacant as it appears, " he lamented.
