Abuja - The House of Representatives has said that it is resolute on its call for the sack of Ms Arunma Oteh, the Director-General, Security and Exchange Commission (SEC).
Rep. Victor Ogene (APGA-Anambra), the Deputy Chairman, House Committee on Media and Public Affairs, made this known while briefing newsmen in Abuja on Thursday.
Ogene said: ``we have taken our position and we are not apologetic about it’’.
He said that contrary to interpretations by Nigerians, the house was not executing but only recommending for the sack of Oteh.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) recalls that the Senate and the house, after investigating the near collapse of the Capital market, resolved not to have anything to do with the commission.
The National Assembly said that it would not rescind its decision, unless Oteh was sacked.
The House Committee on Finance also walked out officials of SEC from a meeting with revenue generating agencies of government on Dec. 5.
On the invitation of the President Goodluck Jonathan to brief it on the security challenges, he said that it would wait until the president deemed it appropriate to come.
``We will wait until such a time that he will deem it fit to come to interface with us.’’
He, however, said that the Speaker, Aminu Tambuwal, had interfaced severally with Jonathan on security matters.
