Senate Declares Vote Of No Confidence On IGP Idris


Senate Wednesday declared that the Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris was not fit to hold any public office both within and outside the country.
The upper legislative chamber also said that Idris is an enemy of democracy.
This development followed the persistent refusal of Idris to honour the Senate's invitations to brief the hallowed chamber on the spate of killings across the country and the inhuman treatment of distinguished senator Dino Melaye over a matter that is pending before a competent law court.
It would be recalled that the latest refusal is the third time the police boss dishonoured senate invitations in three weeks.
Presiding senate President, Bukola Saraki, after a closed session declared the following resolutions of the red chamber.
“In a close session, we deliberated the non-appearance of the IGP to the Senate in plenary after series of invitations.
“The Senate believed it was a gross disrespect to this institution and constituted authority. It also noted that the IGP’s refusal to appear before an investigative committee was overruled by a court of competent jurisdiction in April this year.
“The Senate, therefore, view this persistent refusal as a great danger to democracy. And so resolved that the IGP as an enemy of democracy is not fit to hold any public office within and outside Nigeria.
“The leadership of the Senate was also mandated to look into the matter for further necessary action”.
