PDP reps block motion to probe Jonathan

30 September 2015, 15:05

Abuja - The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) caucus in the House of Representatives on Tuesday blocked a motion seeking to investigate the administration of former President Goodluck Jonathan, reports NewsDay.

The motion was over the alleged non-remittance of about $10 million into the Federation Account by some ministries, agencies and parastatals.

The motion, which was sponsored by Hon. Chike Okafor (APC, Imo), alleged that some Federal Government agencies under the Jonathan administration were involved in underhand dealings in tax remittance and unapproved spending of money meant for the Federation Account.

Okafor had barely finished reading the first paragraph of his motion, before two PDP members raised points of order to stop him.

The PDP lawmakers sought the leave of the House to have the motion stopped from being read and debated on the floor of the lower chamber.

As debate on the motion was going on, some PDP members gathered and were discussing in groups even while the House was in session.

This development compelled the Chief Whip, Ado Doguwa to draw the attention of the Speaker of the House, Yakubu Dogara to the meeting of the PDP lawmakers

Dogara then asked the PDP members to end the meeting.

Okafor was force to withdraw the motion after massive opposition from PDP members.
