The National Assembly on Tuesday reaffirmed the​ vote of no confidence passed by the Senate​ on the Inspector​-​General of Police (IGP), Ibrahim Idris.
 

This was one of the resolutions of the lawmakers after an emergency joint session which was held behind closed doors.

The resolutions were read by  the​ Senate President, Bukola Saraki.

“We also hereby reaffirm our earlier resolution on the vote of no confidence on the Inspector General of Police, who does nothing but preside over innocent Nigerians with an outright disregard for the constitutional authority of both the executive and the legislature,” Saraki said.

The ​u​pper and ​l​ower ​c​hambers also agreed that President Muhammadu Buhari must be held accountable for the actions of his appointees and must ensure a strict adherence to the rule of law.

Part of the resolution read: “That security agencies must be given a marching order to curtail the killings across the country and protect lives of innocent Nigerians, the president, government should show sincerity in the fight against corruption.”
