Lagos State House of Assembly sitting at Alausa has summoned the Commissioner for Waterfront and Infrastructure Development, Arch. Kabiru Ahmed Abdullahi, for refusal to honour invitation from the Committee overseeing activities of the ministry.
Lifestyle Nigeria reports that this happened during plenary today when the Chairman of the committee on Waterfront Infrastructure Development, Hon. Olumuyiwa Abdulwahab Jimoh brought to the attention of the house the unacceptable conduct of the Commissioner in the discharge of his responsibilities.
He prayed the House to allow the committee to urgently commence a comprehensive investigation of all the projects awarded by the Ministry of Waterfront Infrastructure Development since assumption of office of the Commissioner, Arch. Kabiru Ahmed Abdullahi.
Secondly, that the House do pass a vote of no confidence on the Commissioner for Waterfront Infrastructure Development, Arch Kabiru Ahmed Abdullahi and withdraw his confirmation.
This was supported by Hon. Bisi Yusuf, Hon. Abiodun Tobun, Hon. Victor Akande and all the lawmakers who contributed to the motion, and in what looked like a unanimous decision, the lawmakers agreed to grant both prayers.
In his ruling however, the Speaker of the House, Hon. Mudashiru Obasa appealed to House members to extend one last invitation to the Commissioner to appear before them on Thursday 15th, September 2022.
This respite for the Commissioner our source gathered is not unconnected to the fact that the Commissioner having sensed that there was trouble in the air, reached out to some political leaders in order to save his head.
Our source confirmed to us that the Commissioner got this respite because of the intervention of a Northern Governor who called the Speaker to save the day for him.
This is a developing story……..
