APC Reps walk out on plenary over $9.3million cash

Members of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in the House of Representatives on Tuesday walked out on the chambers following a stalled debate on the controversial 9.3 million dollars seized by the South African Government.

The opposition lawmakers staged the walkout after a motion to discuss the matter was opposed and defeated by voice vote.

The motion to debate the issue, raised by the Deputy Minority Leader, Suleiman Kawu (APC-Kano), faced fierce opposition by the Peoples Democratic Party members.

A private jet, with three Nigerians and an Israeli, ‎allegedly conveyed the money allegedly for the purchase of arms and ammunition in South Africa.

The bid by members to debate the motion failed after a voice vote called by the presiding Deputy Speaker, Emeka Ihedioha.

Samson Osagie, the House Minority Whip, on behalf of APC members, queried the smuggling of the money to South Africa.

“Does it amount to offence of money laundering under our laws for the Federal Government to have allowed that company to attempt to pay for the equipment by cash to the tune of that amount without passing through financial institutions?

“For us as a people and for us lawmakers, we find this unacceptable in our view.”

He said Nigerians deserved explanation on the source of the money and the purpose for which it was smuggled abroad.

    PDP goons will oppose any voice against stealing which to them is not corruption. Why they are not interested in money laundering is because none of them can cast a stone that they’ve not stowed away our common wealth in similar manner. Thieves. A house full of Ali Babas under an PDP umbrella held high by Otuoke Clown Prince, Dr. Dumbo. Even Baba Iyabo called them banditos. Ignorant clowns who forgot that a likely court trial of their smugglers in Zulu land will reveal more than our ears can bear to hear… that’s when this David Mark gang of thieves will rush back into their chambers in useless boju-boju hearings. Criminals who said no money was missing at our NNPC amid the now-forgotten forensic examinations of Diezani’s bras… David Mark is the most docile Senate President Worldwide, he’s a “yes man” with a shining mugu badge. His days are up… Animals!

      All we will say is their days are numbered and more day time drama will unfold for even to the understanding of a day old child. Time will surely tell!!!!!!!

  • Baba Messi

    The minority have their say..BUT the majority have their way.
    Right or wrong, it’s democratic.
    The APC pretenders accuse GEJ of thwarting the outcome of the NGF elections.
    Yet they will not abide by the result of the majority in the house.
    GEJ is weak..GEJ is weak, yet, when their super-Hero guvnr Fashola went to visit T.B. Joshua, he sneaked out through a back door and zoomed off to avoid talking to the press! Yet, not a word has been uttered by their megaphone-Lai Lie Moh’d!
    FAKE PEOPLE!
    I laugh! I dey laff…KeKeKeKeKe!

    • endingNaija

Oya make I ask -abi na yu Messi ati redeemweed be di two Nigerians wey Goodluck Jonathan ati Ayo Oritsejafor ask make dem launder di money? Ah ah ah I don see why dey laaaafu now!!!! eh eh eh me sef dey laaaafu oooo messi bro!

      • Baba Messi

        Ahn ahn! You ma dey laff?? Tell u the truth, that cash in the (un)Holy jet dey pain me o..cos we all know say no b for evangelism. But i believe it is time for judgment to start from the house of God. Fake pastors will be exposed for what they are..one by one.
        Having said that, what I detest is the double standards I see from a lot of comments and politicians. People move with d speed of light to condemn the president and his government. I hav no problem with that, cos most of the times it(the criticism) is well deserved. But why will everyone suddenly play deaf and dumb when APC lords mess up?? This place would hav been full with abusive comments had it been a PDP govrnmnt dilly-dallying like Fash-d-cash is doing now.
        That’s the truth

    • Abate Dokpu

      Pathetic

      • Don Messi

        What is pathetic is an elected Guvnr fleeing the crime scene and all of u suddenly acting deaf and dumb.
        People who are selective in what they call ‘bad’ will definitely do worse if in a position to serve..since they will see nothing bad in their own ‘badness’.
        Be real chum.

    • change 2014-2015

      You are a disgrace here because your statement is senseless

      • Don Messi

        Congratulations sir..i guess u pressume yurs is.
        Wrong is wrong..right is right.
        When PDP is wrong, they r wrong. When APC is wrong, they r right in yur warped brain.
        U r FAKE.
        HYPOCRITE!

  • TRUTH MASTER

    APC Reps have shown what opposition is all about. They were right to have walked out. Nigerians will judge in 2015!

      Pdp shall fail come 2015 despite their lies.

  • Scalywag

    The PDP lawmakers have again proved to Nigeria that like their leader Jonathan, they don’t give a damn; as far as they are comcerned impunity is their watchward irrespective of the damage their government does to the image of Nigeria. It is to be seen if they will succeed in sweeping the issue under the carpet. Little wonder Nigeria has simce become a bananna republic.

    • change 2014-2015

      Pdp is a failure.

  • Dankasa

    So the matter now settled at the NASS to put to the usual dustbin after all the attack in FCE Kano and the cooked/triggered-NNPC strike (of course diversionary tactics) which thrown a common man into hardship just to cover of the God-Oritsejafo mess. Dumbo is really Dumbo and many people like Redeem abi na Omekoro they called you never knew he is Dumbo until when its too late, wawa kawai!
