Tambuwal blasts acting IG after being stripped of police protection

Speaker Aminu Tambuwal

The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Aminu Tambuwal, has expressed “shock and amazement” at the explanation given by the Inspector General of Police, Suleiman Abba, for the withdrawal of Mr. Tambuwal’s security detail.

Police aides attached to the speaker were withdrawn Thursday, a day after he defected from the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to the opposition All Progressives Congress, APC.

In the statement by its spokesperson, Emmanuel Ojukwu, on Thursday, the police said the IGP acted because Mr. Tambuwal’s defection to the opposition party breached Section 68 (1) (g) of the 1999 Constitution and was therefore no longer entitled to police security.

Reacting to the statement, Mr. Tambuwal said the police explanation was far from the truth.

“The implication of the inspector general of police’s statement is that as sanction for this alleged constitutional breach, he has removed Rt. Hon Aminu Waziri Tambuwal from office of Speaker House of Representatives,” the statement by the speaker’s media aide, Imam Imam, on Thursday, said.

The statement said the question of whether or not there was a division or faction in the PDP had been resolved by Justice Faji of the Ilorin Division of Federal High Court in suit FHC/ABJ/CS/605/2013, in which the court held that indeed there were factions in the PDP.

The statement also recounted that in suit no FHC/ABJ/CS/ 605/2013, the Sokoto Division of the Federal High Court per Justice Aikawa, the judgment of the court was that there was not only division but faction in the PDP, which later merged with the APC.

“As the number four citizen in the hierarchy of protocol in the country, the Speaker is entitled to security protection by the security agencies, therefore we see the action of the Acting Inspector General of Police as not only contempt of the courts but a ploy to bring harm to the person of Rt. Hon Aminu Waziri Tambuwal,” Mr. Imam said.

“We are on authority that nothing in the 1999 Constitution or the Police Act confers on the police force adjudicatory powers including the interpretation of the constitution. In any case even Section 215 of the 1999 Constitution does not contemplate the issuing of or compliance with unlawful orders by the President and or the Inspector General of Police respectively.”

Mr. Tambuwal argued that what the police chief did had no basis in law including the 1999 Constitution which he cited.

“It is a brazen act of crass impunity, gross constitutional breach and contempt of court. The Inspector General should desist from assuming or usurping the constitutional functions of the Judiciary,” the speaker said.

The speaker argued that Section 68(1)(g) of the Constitution, which deals with a member vacating his seat on grounds of defection and which the Mr. Abba referred to, has a proviso which has been and still is a matter for judicial and not police interpretation.

“We have faith and confidence in our judiciary and are persuaded that it cannot by stampeded into administering injustice,” the statement said.

  • Otile

    Malam Imam Imam Imam, read the constitution, don’t defend your master Imam Tambuwal blindly.

    By the way, imams upon imams don’t do us any good.

  • Akiika

    Chapter V, Part 1 (Composition Of National Assembly) sections 47 -50 of the Constitution Of The Federal Republic Of Nigeria holds:

    There shall be a National Assembly for the Federation which shall consist of a Senate and a House of Representatives.

    48. The Senate shall consist of three Senators from each State and one from the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.

    49. Subject to the provisions of this Constitution, the House of Representatives shall consist of three hundred and sixty members representing constituencies of nearly equal population as far as possible, provided that no constituency shall fall within more than one State.

    50. (1) There shall be:-

    (a) a President and a Deputy President of the Senate, who shall be elected by the members of that House from among themselves; and

    (b) a Speaker and a Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, who shall be elected by the members of that House from among themselves.

    (2) The President or Deputy President of the Senate or the Speaker or Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives shall vacate his office –

    (a) if he ceases to be a member of the Senate or of the House of Representatives, as the case may be, otherwise than by reason of a dissolution of the Senate or the House of Representatives; or

    (b) when the House of which he was a member first sits after any dissolution of that House; or

    (c) if he is removed from office by a resolution of the Senate or of the House of Representatives, as the case may be, by the votes of not less than two-thirds majority of the members of that House.

    So where did PDP find the supposedly “loophole” or authority in law, in asking Hon. Tambuwal to resign? The only option left for them, is to rally their members and see if they can muster the required number when plenary resumes in December, in order to satisfy Section 50, subsection 2 C as highlighted above.

    But, we’ve got a scoundrel as a president that tramples on the law to satisfy selfish interest….100 more days to kick out your shoeless arse from Aso rock!

    • Baba Messi

      According to section 2(a) you quoted above; the Speaker or Deputy speaker of the house of Representatives shall vacate his seat;
      “If he CEASES to be a member or the Senate or of the House of Representatives as the case may be, otherwise than by reason of a dissolution of the Senate or the House of Representatives “.

      Take note of the word ‘ceases’. Furthermore, the Speaker in this case may CEASE to be a member of the house of Representatives if the courts declare he is affected by section 68-1(g):
      A member of the Senate or of the House of Representatives shall vacate his seat in the House of which he is a member if –
      (g) being a person whose election to the House was sponsored by a political party, he becomes a member of another political party before the expiration of the period for which that House was elected;

      Provided that his membership of the latter political party is not as a result of a division in the political party of which he was previously a member or of a merger of two or more political parties or factions by one of which he was previously sponsored”

      Tambuwal knew he was sitting on broken bottles..that was why he had been scared to JUMP!

      • tundemash

        According you you “urthermore, the Speaker in this case may CEASE to be a member of the house of Representatives if the courts declare he is affected by section 68-1(g)”

        so is Dumbo the court to declare/determine if a member of House of Representatives ceases to be a member ?

        • Baba Messi

          Oga, read my comment below with regards to your quesn on wether GEJ can declare if a member ceases to be a memebr!
          NOTE THE TIME I POSTED MY COMMENT BELOW, AND THE TIME YOU POSTED, SO YOU DONT COME BACK WITH YOUR FOUL LANGUAGE SAYING I POSTED IT BECAUSE OF YOUR QUESTION ABOVE!
          We all know your penchant for insulting and arguing blindly even when cornered.
          We are all witnesses to the ‘prayer’ one ‘kamal’ asked you to say amen to and you showed a CLEAN PAIR OF HEELS even when he gave you a concession to say yours!
          If you were a calm person Mr MESS, YOU WULDVE SEEN MY COMMENT BELOW ANSWERED YOUR QUESTION IN THE FIRST SENTENCE!
          Your violent nature is affecting your vision or what???

          • Frank

            Me too I remember the prayer oo! Wey make Mr tundeMeSS dey MESS for pant!!
            I dey laugh o!!!!!!!
            Forget that guy. Na him wife I dey pity! Living with such a disgruntled fellow must be a nightmare!!
            Chai!

          • Musty

            You can say that again!!!

          • tundemash

            coward cheerleading , have you seen the kamal rear his ugly head since i exposed him as a fraud he is ?

            only an idi0t hides under prayers when asked to prove a point. I pasted him my proof and he’s coming back with his “fake pareyrs” to f00l ignoramus like you !

          • tundemash

            Baba Clown …… I have not seen any comment below ….last comment you posted was 9hrs ago and my response was 7hrs ago; clearly you are on something stronger than your feeble mind could cope with.

            As per you fake “kamal”, only an idi0t hides under “fake prayers” when asked to prove a point. Let him go with TB Joshua before the coroner and start a prayer there to prove his case; is that tenable ? have you ever seen your clown mate kamal, on this forum, since I exposed him ?

            And back to the issue: Is Dumbo the court to judge if there was division within PDP and determines when a member of paliarment ceases to be a member?

            Read the submission again when you are sober

            “The statement said the question of whether or not there was a division or faction in the PDP had been resolved by Justice Faji of the Ilorin Division of Federal High Court in suit FHC/ABJ/CS/605/2013, in which the court held that indeed there were factions in the PDP.

            The statement also recounted that in suit no FHC/ABJ/CS/ 605/2013, the Sokoto Division of the Federal High Court per Justice Aikawa, the judgment of the court was that there was not only division but faction in the PDP, which later merged with the APC.”

          • Kamal Kamoru

            We argued and could not come to an agreement. The last resort was to pen a simple prayer. You could not answer. When your fear was glaring, i even suggested you say yours to which I will reply. You took off!
            Some of us don’t have the ‘luxury’ to be here from morning till night like you. So don’t expect to see me here alwys rambling endlessly like you do.
            You are a liar and an ungodly person tunde, that is why assume everyone lies the way you do.
            Keep up the good work; you still have about 20hrs of insulting left for the day.
            Well done.

          • tundemash

            Olodo ….. you challenged me to show proof you changed your handle which I did with documentation and your proof was a “simple prayer” ? Where is that done except in the mist of the guillible “. Why couldn’t you submit a verfiable proof as you requested from me Mr. Prayer warrior ?

          • Kamal Kamoru

            Shame on you for not being able to see by ‘luxury’, I meant not having the time to sit on my butt all day going back and forth with a lowlife like you. Got better things to do buster.
            So according to you, unrestricted access to the Internet is a ‘luxury’!
            Wow!! Hahahaha! Bushman!!!
            I can see you indeed have the ‘luxury’ of being here posting crap all day: you have posted like a million replies(u hardly ever have a comment of your own) since then!
            Well-done sir..u still have about another million to go! FIRE ON OGA!

          • Baba Messi

            TundeMESS, as at this moment, your first reply to my comment reads ’10 hrs ago’.
            THE COMMENT I ASKED YOU TO SCROLL DOWN AND READ AT THIS MOMENT READS ’11 HRS AGO’!!!

            NawaooO! Are you so D@FT????
            Oga, i don’t have time to argue with someone who sees WHITE and calls it BLACK! Keep on making a phoool of yourself on the WorldIWideWeb!!

          • tundemash

            Baba Clown …… you ain’t different from the other e-rats; always shifting the goal post. I am so d@ft, you and your mentor Reno keep having sleepless nights.

            Olodo …. a commet made “11 hours ago” can’t be below unless you guys read upside down at the amnesty camp. The comment you must be reffering to must be the one above that of MUSTASH and it doesn’t change my view: DUMBO can’t be the accuser and judge in his own case.

          • Baba Messi

            You call GEJ dumbo but honestly you are a DUMB! OF MONUMENTAL PROPORTIONS!! TundeMESS you are a BIG PHOOL!!
            THE COMMENT I WAS REFERING TO IS BELOW MUSTASH AND EVEN KAY SOYEMI’S!! RIGHT NOW IT READS 14HRS AGO YOU DONKEY!!
            Since you are a dumb frog, let me break it down to you:
            As at this moment;
            I replied ‘Akiika’ at 14hrs ago.
            You, DUMB A*S MESS Replied me at 13hrs ago.
            I then replied you at 7hrs ago.
            MY COMMENT I ASKED YOU TO SCROLL DOWN TO READ IS BELOW THOSE OF MUSTASH AND KAY SOYEMI’S AND IT NOW READS 14HRS AGO!!
            I WROTE IT BEFORE YOUR FIRST REPLY TO ME HENCE I SAID YOU SHOULD SCROLL DOWN!!!!!!!!
            IT READS THE SAME TIME AS MY FIRST COMMENT; BOTH 14HRS AGO!!
            I don’t usually insult people but saying what you actually are might not be an insult. I’m jst calling you by your name: EGOCENTRIC BIG PHOOOOOOL!!!

          • Frank

            I told you to forget that guy. He does not realize this is a public forum and people observe his embarrassing gaffes.
            I personally scrolled down and saw the comment. Don’t know why his brain is so slow in comprehending stuff.
            Pray for him Mr Messi, pray for him. He has serious anger issues. It be clouds his sense of reasoning most times.
            Disgusting fellow!

          • tundemash

            You are the f00lish one here and clearly struggling to follow the trend the chat is organised. The numbers of your fellow dundee united cheerleading you don’t move me. My response was to the comment you made above MUSTASH; I was not involved in your discussion with MUSTASH and Kay Soyemi; which you have half-cleverly dodged his poser to you.

            Clown , you don’t usually insult poeple but your very 1st sentence was an insult. Listen and listen well, I have dealt with bigger e-rats in the past and you will also go into oblivion, just as them, after your 15mins of fame is over !! To confront evil and all their agents isn’t a tea party so I am well prepared for all you e-rats !!!!

          • Anthony

            Tundemash, are you ok? Scroll down and see the comment he was referring to.
            You keep insulting people but several times you are wrong. What do you do about the insults that have already come out of your foul mouth seeing you were wrong again?

      • MUSTASH

        Tambuwal ceases to be a speaker if he ceases to be a member of the House, (if) “he becomes a member of another political party before the expiration of the period for which that House was elected;
        Provided that his membership of the latter political party is not as a result of a division in the political party of which he was previously a member or of a merger of two or more political parties or factions by one of which he was previously sponsored.”
        Is PDP not factionalized?

        • Baba Messi

          IS IT FACTIONALIZED RIGHT NOW TO WARRANT HIS DEFECTION AT THIS POINT IN TIME?????????

          WHAT STOPPED HIM FROM DEFECTION WHEN IT APPEARED THERE WAS A FACTION??

          WHY COULD HE NOT COME OUT OPENLY AND IDENTIFY WITH THE nPDP SO THAT HE CAN NOW PROVE BE WAS PART OF THEM??

          TREACHERY NEVER PAYS OGA!!

          • Kay Soyemi (Esq.)

            If it, PDP, was no longer factionalised, what was the reconciliation team of Anenih doing in Sokoto some days ago and why was Tambuwal snubbed during the visit?

            Baby kissing?

  • Baba Messi

    I urge the Executive to be patient for the clarification by the courts, and not breach the constitution by taking matters into their hands.
    However, the rulings where the two courts ‘claim’ there were divisions in the PDP were made since 2013. It is debatable wether indeed there were factions then.
    TAMBUWAL SHOULD HAVE DEFECTED SINCE THEN WHEN IT WAS CLAIMED A FACTION EXISTED..BUT AS OF THIS MOMENT, THERE IS NO DIVISION NOR FACTION IN THE PDP. It’s like someone defecting in 2020 and claiming there was a division in 2013!
    Tambuwal knew without the office of speaker of the House of Reps, he would be a NOBODY! That is why he clutched on to it till the last moment, unfortunately, it has backfired badly!
    I watched this Imam guy earlier on TV and he was SHAKING LIKE A JELLY While his voice quivered like he had pneumonia!
    I foresee chaos in that house whenever it reconvenes, and the cesspool of corruption called a ‘hallowed chamber’ being shut under lock and key..with the key delivered to so called ‘dumb’ Jona for safe keeps.
    The treacherous game has come to an abrupt end..and as usual, the traitor gets to ‘walk the plank’.

    • Salihu Yahaya

      @Messi, Likewise GEJ without the presidency is nobody true or false? sycophant!

      • Baba Messi

        True!!
        So why should you pressume when in actual sense I agree with you?
        PRESUMPTUOUS BIGOT!!

    • Kay Soyemi (Esq.)

      I wonder what your opinion of the Mark-led Senate is?

  • Ekwekwe

    Long grammar. You’ve left the PDP, party with the majority of seats in the House of Representatives to the opposition party , APC. It does not take a degree in Law or Political Science to figure out the right thing to do. A (wo)man of honour will resign the position of speaker and carry on happily with his/her friends and allies in the new party. Why create unnecessary problem for yourself and other Nigerians. Alhaji Tambu, would you have tried what you’ve done in the past two days, not to talk about the past few years, with Obasanjo as president? Wake up to the real world, Alhaji.

    • MUSTASH

      Are you implying that what the IGP did is right?

      • Ayobanna

        Yes and Correct!

        • lbrw.

          Am sorry for you and your type of nigerians, here is a PDP which is wasting time and resources pursuing a failed agenda where mr jonathan is pretending be in charge whereas monkeys and orangutans are deciding the future of human beings. sorry sorry sorry, i don’t imagine how much childishness this government will continue display. you leave urgent and important matter of the state embark on withdrawal of security details from Tambuwal who has decided to free himself from a parochial and misguided set of imbeciles. let me warn Nigerians from this window…in the entire PDP, the only intelligent, most responsible, most gifted, most brainy …..in fact the most qualified of all the clowns is this guy called Jonathan ????…..who needed a teenager in Malala, an Afghan from the UN to remind him that he swore an oath to protect the lives and property of Nigerians……a president who got drunk on the eve of a commonwealth meet in the u.k, ….a president who does not know the location of gwoza in nigeria, a jonathan that claims he cannot recognise the ‘great’ Shekau if he sees him,,,,,haba haba oh oh am speechless, somebody help me knock these nigerians out of this state of hopeless melancholy.

    • Scalywag

      Are you therefore suggesting that Obasanjo’s time was an iconic era in Nigerian democracy? What would obasanjo have done? Do you remember his futile attempts to remove Ghali Na-Abbah? For those of you who grovel around PDP and presidency for crumbs, fair indeed is foul

    • fact

      what do u expect from Ibo man with an IBOIC agenda…shame on u…u find it difficult to reason…nawa for u o

  • TRUTH MASTER

    Withdrawing Tambuwal’s security is a knee-jerk approach to a serious issue that is typical of the Jonathan Administration. But who is surprised? This FG is very vindictive, quite shallow and damn impulsive.

    Whatever happens, this FG is bound to go downhill….from now till the elections next February, when hopefully Nigerians will show it the way out.

    • Kay Soyemi (Esq.)

      In the meantime, Mr. Tambuwal, you are better advised to solicit advice from both Mr. Amaechi and Mr. SLS on how to weather the ‘storm in a teacup’ that Aso Rock is almost certainly brewing for you.

      Please do not underrate petty and small minded criminals. If you ignore them, it is at your own peril.

      • TRUTH MASTER

        You are right on the money, Kay!

        ‘weather the storm in a teacup’ yet SANUSI IS BACK GROVELING BEFORE YOUR ‘Dumb’ Jona???
        Hahahahaha! I dey laff o!
        Tell you what, to be able to challenge the presidency, you ONLY weapon will be your honesty/integrity!
        All these guys; Tambuwal, SLS, Amaechi DONT HAVE THIS!!
        That’s why anytime the presidency wants, they can close in on any of them. This is the real reason why SLS is on perpetual pilgrimage to the villa!!
        Be real Mr Kay, be REAL!!

        • Kay Soyemi (Esq.)

          Baba Messi,

          Neither you nor I were at the meeting at the Villa, but I will like to remind you as to why there is a saying about crocodile tears!

          I presume you know the origin of the saying?

  • TRUTH MASTER

    I have said it before and I am repeating it now: Nigeria has no police force. Or how else does one explain the actions of a police force that acts in accordance with the dictates of the government in power? The first task of any government that comes after Jonathan will be to rebuild the police from the scratch. We can’t continue like this!

    • tolu

      now what happen to fayose? the police should quickly interprete it , weither he is eligible to contest or not

  • Scalywag

    Very interesting Mr. Abba the acting IGP. Now please kindly respond to the assertions by the Office of the Speaker of the Nigerian House of Representatives which is one of the main institutions of Democracy. It has been gleaned from reports that it was the house leader that moved for the adjournment of the House till December 3rd. We await the denouement of that day!

    • Chima

      Are you aware that any provision of the constitution that says “shall” enforces itself. The erstwhile Speaker with all his knowledge of Law as a lawyer didn’t realize that he has resigned from 7th NASS as a member and you need to be a member before you can become a speaker. The police should not bother responding to Mr. Imam Imam because at this point he is no more a serious quantity. All the judgments he is citing are already stale and does not apply to his present status so he need to go to court afresh to assert his claims as at today.

  • Dan Fulani

    There wouldn’t have been Boko Haram if there were no Nigerian police.
    In the Northeast you don’t see the cowards anywhere apart from their stations or barracks.
    In the Northeast they don’t allow anybody to come close to their stations for any reason even if to report murder.

  • Obinna

    Please was Mimiko’s security detail stripped???

    • shola

      Not just Mimiko (we may say he is a governor). Was the ondo state house of assembly speaker security details stripped as she also defected with Mimiko.

      • Ayobanna

        In the case you cited, the Ondo Members all defected to PDP meaning the new party has majority. APC is a minority. Tambuwala should be honorable and resign than creating tension and blame another. Honorable nonsense!

        • Maria

          Nothing in the Constitution says the speaker or senate president must be from the majority party… please, stop spreading ignorance…it is deadly.

    • Musanga

      Is Mimiko a paliamentarian?

  • Daniel Dikejesus

    According to THE 1999 CONSTITUTION
    68.
    (1) A member of the Senate or of the House of Representatives shall
    vacate his seat in the House of which he is a member if –
    (g)
    being a person whose election to the House was sponsored by a political
    party, he becomes a member of another political party before the
    expiration of the period for which that House was elected;
    Provided
    that his membership of the latter political party is not as a result of
    a division in the political party of which he was previously a member
    or of a merger of two or more political parties or factions by one of
    which he was previously sponsored
    So
    Tambuwal should vacate from office now and any security withdrawn
    immediately. The Governors case is different and during second republic
    this amended constitution is not yet in place

  • UNAFFECTED

    Reading the body language, utterances and actions of folks in the PDP, I can see clearly that the party does not like nor want opposition to its rule in Nigeria. The party is left scrambling to stem the incursion of the APC. As a political analyst, I am amazed at the careful and incremental pattern with which APC has made gains in the past one year. The party is really filled with mavericks while the PDP is a forum for men with their heads in the cloud. Times have changed and to the PDP I can only say: welcome to politics.

  • Chris1408

    The Nigerian Police that’s supposed to be neutral and protect all Nigerians is now the security arm of the PDP. They’ve degraded themselves from being security guards to the rich and famous to PDP security guards.

    • Tunsj

      Nothing left for me to add, you said it all.

    The anger should be focused on the drunkard in aso vila… these yeye IGsand others are just tools in his hand to decimate Nigerians.

      ‘Fulani Herdsmen, Others Donate N98.1m For Jonathan’s Form’

      By George Agba — Oct 30, 2014 |
      41 Comments

      President Goodluck Jonathan will
      today pick the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) nomination form for the
      2015 presidential election.

      This is even as he has realised of
      N98.165million as donations made to him by both corporate and individual
      donors to enable him pay the required N22 million for the PDP
      presidential nomination fee and expression of interest form.

      While
      Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore, the national body of Fulani herdsmen,
      donated the sum of N5million, with other groups like National
      Association of Widows donating hundreds of thousands of naira, the PDP
      Governors’ Forum and the Transformation Ambassadors of Nigeria (TAN)
      donated the highest amount of N22million each.

      Special adviser to
      the president on media and publicity, Dr Reuben Abati, who stated this
      while briefing State House correspondents, said the president thanked
      all Nigerians, including members of the PDP, his friends, associates,
      and all other groups who out of appreciation of the achievements of his
      administration in the last four years, had been urging him to seek a
      second term in office.

      Abati said, “The president is also grateful
      to all the persons, groups and communities that have sent donations and
      made pledges to assist him to pay the required N22million for the PDP

        No I cannot read and understand English… so, post your comment in a language that I understand…By the way, if you like you can even include the association of Nigeria armed robbers as some of those who contributed for his nomination form… that is your headache not mine.

          What an arrogant idi*t are you? You are most likely one of those armed robbers, seeing that there are armed robbers in every zone in continent Nigeria.

    The presidency is highly predictable. I know their first move wil be to deploy Mbu and his goons to block Tambuwal and refuse him from gaining access into his office.. Then they will ask the deputy speaker to make a pronouncement, declaring himself the new speaker. After that they’ll instruct Mbu to give him the speaker’s security entitlements. These were the things they did in Rivers State and still failed. Trust me, they are dumb enough to repeat this at the national level.
