Impeachment threat: Jittery Gbajabiamila bows, accepts NGF's conditions on IDC Bill

By Dansu Peter 

Following a popurted impeachment threat, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila may have cowed into accepting earlier rebuffed conditions of the Nigeria Governors Forum, the NGF on the controversial Infectious Disease Control Bill.

News Proof had yesterday reported a report culled from Nigerian Pilot newspaper alleging that there was a disagreement between the Nigerian Governors Forum and the Speaker, House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila. 

The disagreement which, according to the report suggested that some governors, led by Sokoto's, Aminu Tambuwal have begun a secret move to impeach the Speaker.

After feeling the heat of the alleged impeachment threat, Speaker Femi Gbajabiamila, yesterday revealed the readiness of the House to partner Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF) in the bid to produce a satisfactory Control of Infectious Diseases Bill for the citizens.

A suggestion, the House of Representatives had earlier rebuffed, stating it does not legislate for the state government to have warranted the governors interference in its oversight function. 

Hon. Gbajabiamila gave the assurance via his verified Twitter handle expressed delight over the outcome of the discussion held with the Chairman of Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF), Governor Kayode Fayemi on the NGF’s resolution on the controversial bill.

“I spoke with the Chairman NGF @kfayemi. From our discussion, it appears there was some miscommunication between NGF and @HouseNGR.

“I believe Gov. Fayemi’s narrative as I have known Gbajabiamila for many years and will convey the same to my colleagues.

“The House and the Govs irrespective of party affiliation have always and will continue to work in the best interest of our country.

“We remain committed to the Joint Task of nation-building and we will also work on the Control of Infectious diseases Bill together to produce a Bill satisfactory to all,” Gbajabiamila said via his verified Twitter handle.
