Members of the House of Representatives have denied an alleged plot to impeach the Speaker of the House of Representatives, FEMI GBAJABIAMILA.
The lawmakers made the disclaimer during Tuesday’s plenary amid reports that the Northern Caucus of the House was planning to impeach the speaker to ensure that the controversial Water Resources Bill was passed.
According to the lawmakers, it is ridiculous that such a publication will be made, insisting that they are solidly behind the speaker.
The matter was later referred to the House Committee on Ethics and Privileges for further investigation.
Meanwhile, a bill to amend the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Act has scaled the second reading in the lower chamber of the National Assembly.
