….. says Doguwa threat a wishful thinking
A member of the House of Representative, Teejay Yusuf (PDP, Kabba-Bunu/Ijumu) has dismissed the threat of the Leader of the House, Ado Garba Doguwa, as wishful thinking.
Doguwa had threatened to mobilise for sanctions against the leader of the PDP House Caucus, Hon. Kingsley Chinda over his call for impeachment of President Muhammadu Buhari over the worsening security situation in the country.
Hon. Yusuf in his reaction said Doguwa position contradicts the rising concern of Nigerians on security sitauion in the country.
He stated in a statement that the Leader of the House seems carried away by his position that he cannot feel the heat of bandits and terrorists’ daily killings and abductions of innocent citizens in rural and urban parts across the North and southern Nigeria.
He explained that Doguwa failed to understand that Chinda only called for the use of a impeachment as a tool for the furtherance of democracy without going outside the rule of law.
Besides, Yusuf said Chinda only spoke for members of the House PDP Caucus.
By dabbling into opposition members’ affair, trying to speak for them and expressing crass sycophancy for the executive arm, House Leader, Hon Ado Garba Doguwa has thoroughly desecrated the high position he currently occupies, the PDP member said.
He said “a proper understanding of the duties and responsibilities of a House Leader in terms of policy formulation, party issues and democratic development would have motivated Hon Ado Garba Doguwa to respond to the Minister of Justice’ s view that the House cannot invite the President over grave national issues.
“People who are supposed to be knowledgeable should be adding value to robust democratic processes and practice.
“But for someone who has been around the House of Representatives since 1991 to denigrate or belittle such, Is very anti-democratic, highly disappointing, prankish and embarrassing to us all,” Honourable Yusuf stated.
Dismissing Hon Doguwa’s threat to mobilise for sanctions against the leader of PDP House Caucus, Hon. Kingsley Chinda over his call for impeachment of President Muhammadu Buhari, Hon Yusuf stated that such wishful thinking antagonizes the rising concern of Nigeria citizens.
“Hon. Doguwa is so carried away by the air-conditioning in his Office that he can neither feel the heat of bandits and terrorists’ daily killings and abductions on innocent citizens in rural and urban parts across the North and southern Nigeria.
“He grossly disappointed democracy by failing to realise that Hon Chinda only called for the use of a impeachment as a tool for the furtherance of democracy without going outside the rule of law.
“Very clearly and effectively, Hon Kingsley Chinda speaks for those of us who are members of the House PDP Caucus; it is a gross anomaly for any Doguwa to dabble into our affairs, see himself as a legitimate usurper or impersonator and proclaim to a gullible audience that he does not think that Hon Chinda is speaking for us.
“Sycophancy from APC figures like Hon Doguwa has thoroughly lulled the executive arm into slumber, generating unprecedented level of youth unemployment and singling out this administration as the only one to record two recessions in the history of Nigeria.
“Hon Doguwa got it wrong and it is very sad that the high expectations of the high position that he occupies is being brought low with such impunity and wanton disregard for the opposition’s democratic rights to make a call that resonates with millions of deeply concerned citizens of Nigeria,” Hon Teejay stated.
