In defiance of the resolution of the National Assembly to seal up and to take over the functions of the kogi State Assembly over protracted leadership crisis, the faction loyal to Umar Imam on Thursday resumed sitting with the resolution to rehabilitate public schools in the state.
The resolution followed a motion on urgent public importance presented by Hon. Sanni Abdulkareem, member representing Okehi State Constituency, ? on the dilapidated nature of Boroke Girls Secondary School which has been abandoned.
In seconding the motion, Hon. John Abbah, member representing Ibaji Constituency, added that the state government should take an overview of all the public schools? with a view to rehabilitating them.
Ruling on motion, Hon. Umar Imam, the Speaker, said it had become imperative for the government to rehabilitate public schools for the future of the children.
Before adjourning plenary till April 12, 2016?, the committee on public accounts was saddled with the responsibility to recover government vehicles from former political office holders who served in the past administrations.
Recall that the resolution of the House of Representatives which was concurred by the Senate last week to take over the functions of the Kogi Assembly and mandating the Inspector General of Police (IGP) to seal off the complex would have been ignored by the five man faction who impeached Momohjimoh Lawal, erstwhile speaker, by the plenary sitting on Thursday.
