Arewa Youths Advise House Of Reps Against Reconvening Early

By Deborah Musa, Abuja

Arewa Consultative Youth Movement (ACYM) advised the House of Representatives against alleged push from some politicians for them to reconvene before the assigned time of resumption.

ACYM had alleged in a statement by its President, Kabiru Yusuf in Abuja, that there is a plan to reconvene the lower chamber of the National Assembly earlier than usual, for the purpose of smearing the image of the Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria(CBN) Mr Godwin Emefiele, following the purchase of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC’s presidential nomination form for him by three groups.

To this end, the group Advised the federal lawmakers not to allow themselves be used like school boys as that was not the purpose the house of Representatives was made for.

“We are aware that some powerful politicians are currently pushing for the  reconvening of the House of Representatives just for their selfish reasons.


“The framer of our Constitution do not envisage a situation where some persons in the leadership of the legislature will be using co-lawmakers like school boys to score political goals. 

“We, therefore, urge Honourable members of the House of Representatives to live up to the expectation of being honourable by shunning such a move,” a statement by the group’s leader, Mr Kabiru Yusuf, said.

It tasked members of the legislature to  “summon the courage” to put promoters of the reconvening of the Green Chamber where they belong before they drag the respected legislature in the mud with him.”
