Suleiman Aliyu also testify that he did not participate and the Independence National Electoral Commission (INEC) are aware of this too.

“We wonder why and how the COURT OF APPEAL IN KADUNA wants to impose someone ,who did not participated fully in all the stages of the 2019 general election to the good people of Lere Federal constituency and also after 182 days of the last judgments. We all know that appeal have it stipulated time (election tribunal cases have 60 days) and ordinary case (14 days). ” The statement said.

“Last week few selfish, unprofessional, unpatriotic, corrupted, and undemocratic people claiming to be representing the voice of Lere Federal Constituency People, and also went on with disrespecting Nigerian honourable members and continue with disrespecting and calling on the speaker of the national assembly to act on their personal favour and interest, despite the fact both parties are still in the courts.

“We want to categorically inform this unpatriotic people that the RT. Hon. Speaker (Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila) is a honourable member and a highly respected citizen of the federal republic of Nigeria, a lawyer and the speaker of the 9th assembly, as a lawmaker, he ensure justice, fairness and equal representation of the masses, not only the people of his constituency but the nation at large.

Femi Gbajamiala, demanding that Engineer Sulaiman Lere of APC be sworn in as their duly Representative for the constituency, vowed to take over the house by force if the Hon. Speaker refused to comply.

Nothern Youths Parliament, said the call is unpatriotic and should be treated as a wasted effort, said if the call is heed, can cause a serious constitutional problem, unrest issues and the future of Nigeria political system and the next generation would be at risk.

They called on the appropriate authorities to as a matter of urgency, protect their mandate and save their constituency from any form of National embarrassment.
