Senate covers El-Rufai from petition over insecurity in Kaduna

Lawmakers, yesterday, blocked a petition against the nomination of former Kaduna State governor, Nasir El-Rufai, when he appeared for screening. THE GUARDIAN reports.

As soon as the floor was thrown open, Sunday Karimi (Kogi West) drew the attention of his colleagues and the nominee to a petition, which he said would be submitted, in line with parliamentary rules.

Karimi said: “Your performance in any office you served has been outstanding. Your record is there. In the FCT, as a minister, your record is there, and as a two-term governor of Kaduna State. I have a very strong petition against you that borders on security and unity of the nation, and I think that petition has to be considered alongside this screening.”NYSC Portal

After raising the envelope, he submitted it to Deputy Senate President, Barau Jibrin, who was presiding.

Senate President, Godswill Akpabio, however, took over, saying: “I have to inform all of you that I have received similar petitions from people against other nominees, but this is not where we are to deal with petitions. Our job here is to screen. And, of course, we can refer petitions to where petitions will be dealt with.JAMB Result

“They are nominees of Mr. President. If it is something where there is a formal petition before the Senate, we will look at it formally. But there are certain petitions we have to refer to the Presidency or security agencies to look at, and that has nothing to do with us. By the time we go into confirmation, we will be so advised. So, I want my brother to take a bow and go, and don’t bother to explain the petition.”
