Following rising tension and agitation for secession and restructuring which dominated national discuss during its 8 weeks recess, the House of Representatives upon resuming plenary session, Tuesday has resolved to toll the line of restructuring by revisiting the issue of devolution of power, The Independent reported.
The House has resolved to set up an adhoc committee to reach out to various interest groups and stakeholders across the country as a means of resolving all contending issues that threaten the peace and unity of Nigeria.
Moving the motion under matters of urgent public importance, House Majority Leader, Femi Gbajabiamila called on the House to quench what he described as “a burning fire” which is threatening the existence of Nigeria.
”Mr. Speaker, these issues regarding agitations were all over the place, from the East, the West, the North and South. And we have as a responsibility to speak with one voice as a House and bring healing and reconciliation to our dear country.
“So I ask, are we going to play the ostrich and act as if nothing is wrong? We have swore to protect the unity and ensure the progress of this country and that we should be seen to be doing; and like it was said, the task of keeping this nation one is a task that must be done”, he urged.
