Akwa-Ibom: Senate Orders Policemen To Evacuate The Akwa-Ibom State Assembly

Akwa-Ibom State House Of Assembly

On Thursday 22, the Senate authorized the police to evacuate the properties of the Akwa Ibom State House of Assembly as well as stop denying legislators access to their chambers.

The subject of shutting of the State House of Assembly was brought up for debate on the floor of the Senate again, when Senator Bassey Akpan exposed that state policymakers were still incapable of accessing their chambers.

He stated that, “Security agents are still there. No legislator has been allowed in or out. We owe the people of Akwa Ibom this responsibility. It is not right. An injury to Akwa Ibom State is an injury to Nigeria.”

Underwriting to the issue, Senator Ahmad Kaita insinuated that, “If the police vacate the premises, the legislators will go in there with their supporters and create fracas. The police are only there to promote peace. Let us, as a Senate, verify the facts of this issue before taking any action.”

At the conclusion of the debate, which saw Senators Bukola Saraki,  Ike Ekweremadu, Bala Na’allah, Sam Anyanwu and others contributing, the Senate set on to “ask that the police to vacate the premises and not prevent the legislators to have access to the chambers.”
