The National Assembly has again passed a vote of no confidence on Inspector General of Police (IGP), Ibrahim Idris.
The lawmakers made the resolution, among others, after an emergency joint session which was held behind closed doors.
Reading the resolutions, the Senate President Bukola Saraki said the IGP Idris performs his duties with “outright disregard for the constitutional authority of both the executive and the legislature”.
“We also hereby reaffirm our earlier resolution on the vote of no confidence on the Inspector General of Police, who does nothing but preside over innocent Nigerians with an outright disregard for the constitutional authority of both the executive and the legislature,” Saraki said.
The joint session said President Muhammadu Buhari must sanction some of his appointees whose actions negates constitutional stipulations.
“The President must be held accountable for the actions of his appointees and must be ready to sanction those that carry out any act which will ridicule or endanger our country and democracy”, the lawmakers said.
