Former Chairman of the House ‘of Representatives Committee on Appropriation, Abdulmumin Jibrin, on Thursday, questioned President Muhammadu Buhari’s “inaction” following recent face-off between the Senate and the executive.
The Senate have twice rejected the President’s nomination of Mr. Ibrahim Magu as the substantive chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.
The lawmakers have also put on hold the consideration of a letter from the Presidency requesting legislative approval for the nomination of 27 Resident Electoral Commissioners for the Independent National Electoral Commission, insisting that the names will not be considered until the
President removed Magu as Acting Chairman of the EFCC.
In series of tweets via his @AbdulAbmJ handle, Jibrin noted that President Buhari’s inaction recently painted a picture of him that was in contrast with that of the “no nonsense [Army] General” many Nigerians knew.
He tweeted, “History will be kind to PMB for his intergrity, building opposition and ending insurgency but may never forgive him for his many inactions (sic).
“PMB’s inaction are so numerous that you are tempted to doubt if he is aware of his inactions and all the absurdity presently going on
“Is this the Muhammadu Buhari we know? the no nonsense general? Noooooo something is wrong! if not, we would have seen more decisive actions
“Could it be PMB’s access to information and current happening is restricted in an attempt to reduce his worries and help him fully recover?
“Could it be some powerful people are aware of this situation PMB may be in and are taking advantage of it and/or taking things for granted?
“Well, things are not adding up! uncertainty and crisis everywhere, we are moving too slow when we can move faster. Is the C-in-C even aware?”
