Femi Gbajabiamila, majority leader of the house of representatives, says the amendment of the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB) Act by the national assembly will “not see the light of day”.

The majority leader had made an attempt to revisit the bill but when Yakubu Dogara, the speaker, put it to a vote, the legislators kicked against it.

Gbajabiamila, while giving an end of year report on activities of the lower legislative chamber over the weekend, said the amendment to the CCB Act was an “error” and as such, “unconstitutional.”

“Sometimes some things slip through the cracks. That is why I brought a motion to debate it again when I discovered the error. It is unconstitutional,” he said.

“It is not going to see the light of day. It is pertinently unconstitutional.”

Gbajabiamila further said the house took the necessary steps against Abdulmumin Jibrin, who accused Dogara and other legislators of budget padding.

“I believe the house felt that Jibrin went against the ethics of the institution and they took the necessary steps to address it so that it does not occur in future. Not everyone will agree with this decision.The house has since moved on,” he said.

He said that he did not see anything wrong in the budget processes but there may be need for improvements in some areas.

The majority leader added that the petroleum bill, though not debated on the floor of the house, is being considered an engagement is ongoing with stakeholders.
