MUTA: Gbajabiamila accepts controversial Tivs petition from Rep Gbillah

 

Femi Gbajabiamila, Speaker of the House of Representatives, has approved the petition of the Tiv people of Benue State who live in the United States of America.

It will be remembered that the Deputy Speaker, Idris Wase, dismissed the petition last week, claiming that Nigerians in abroad did not have the legal standing to petition the House.

The rejection, on the other hand, drew widespread condemnation from Nigerians around the globe.

On the other hand, Hon. Gbajabiamila, who presided over the plenary on Tuesday, accepted the petition presented by Mark Gbillah, representing the Gwer East West Federal Constituency of Benue State.

He stated that the House of Representatives cannot discriminate against any Nigerian, regardless of where they are located in the country.

“I believe this is the same petition that has caused so much consternation.

“The misunderstanding stemmed from a signature issue.

“Now that we’ve cleared up that misunderstanding, please go ahead and file your petition so that it can be properly addressed.

“Thank you, Honorable Mark Gbillah. “I appreciate your patience,” Gbajabiamila said.
