PDP Rep calls on Buhari to intervene in NASS crisis

27 July 2015, 07:49

Mangu - Representative Solomon Maren, (PDP Plateau), on Sunday called on President Muhammadu Buhari to intervene in the crisis in the National Assembly for the progress of the country.

Maren made the call in an interview during a thanksgiving service organised by Caleb Mutfwang, the Chairman of Mangu Local Government Area at Ampang West in Mangu.

"We, in PDP, are not happy with the development in the National Assembly, because it has prevented us from serving the nation, especially our electorate as expected.

Maren, who is representing Mangu/Bokkos Federal Constituency, described the crisis in the National Assembly as "unacceptable".

"We are expected to resume seating on Tuesday, July 28 and any attempt to shift the date will be resisted, " he added.
