Idris vs Senate: Ukweni tells NASS to issue warrant of arrest on Police IG

Unread postby Wsj » Thu May 17, 2018 9:27 am

For refusing to honour Senate’s invitation, Ntufam Mba Ekpezu Ukweni, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN) has advised the Red Chamber to issue warrant of arrest on the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris.

Ukweni, who spoke with DAILY POST on Wednesday, decried the attitude of the IGP.

Recall that the Senate had last week described IGP Idris as an enemy of democracy after he shunned the invitation for the third time.

Reacting, Ukweni said, “His refusal to honour the invitation shows the character of the persons that are at the helm of affairs in public offices.

“If it is in a country where people abide by the laws, he is not even supposed to stay there the next moment. He supposed to have resigned on his own.

“The option available to the Senate is still there in the law but the question is, Senate has the power to issue warrant for his arrest but who is going to enforce it?

“That is the question, may be these are the areas he is capitalizing on, ‘let me see, I am the IGP, let me see a police man who will come and arrest me’.

“That is the Senate of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, it is not a person, we personalize governance and every issue relating to governance and public interest are personalized.”

He also noted further that, “If you make a statement that is in public interest, they personalize it that you are attacking the President. Even when issues you have raised are properly addressed and would assist in giving a direction to proper governance, they trivialize it and personalize it.

“That is why institutions become smaller than the people who occupy it; people who occupy public offices become bigger and larger than the offices they occupy.”

According to him, “it is embarrassing, but the President will not see it that way, that it was embarrassment to his government, he sees it as if it is ok, the IGP was working for him.

“But when he ordered him to move to Benue State, the President also expressed worry why he was not there, it is disrespect.”
