Earlier today during plenary, member representing Etinan/Nsit Ibom/Nsit Ubium federal constituency in the House of Representatives, Barr Onofiok Luke made a case for federal government support for the establishment of the Ibom deep seaport and industrial city in Akwa Ibom state.

This he made while contributing to a motion on the need for government intervention in the persistent gridlock around Apapa/Wharf area in Lagos State.

The motion was brought to the House by Hon. Egberongbe Mufutau Adewale.

Obey court orders on El-Zakzaky, Reps tell FG

Members of the House of Representatives on Wednesday asked the federal government to obey existing court orders on the detained leader of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN), Ibrahim El-Zakzaky, to ensure “amicable solution to lingering protests by the group.” ‎

The lawmakers also condemned, in strong terms,‎ Tuesday’s invasion of the National Assembly complex by the Shiite group, which reportedly led to loss of life and properties.

This followed a unanimous adoption of a motion brought under matters of urgent national importance by the House Minority L‎eader, Ndudi Elumelu (PDP, Delta).

Elumelu, leading debate on the motion, expressed concern over increasing violence by the Shiite members who have been protesting El-Zakzaky’s continued detention.

Whereas some lawmakers said there was need to‎ address “the root cause” of the protests, which they identified as the continuous detention of El-Zakzaky; others, however, called for a holistic review of the nation’s security architecture.

They warned that similar circumstances led to the emergence and subsequent metamorphosis of Boko Haram, hence the need for caution.

Onofiok Luke (PDP, Akwa Ibom) said it was unfortunate that while the lawmakers were empowered to make laws, the federal government was going against the rule of law in its disobedience to the court orders ordering the release of the IMN leader.

“If the court has granted an order for the release of the man, we call on the government to release him.

The discourse should not be on the invasion of the National Assembly alone,” he said.
