See what happened in House of Reps’ first sitting

The ninth House of Representatives held its first plenary session on Thursday after the members opened on 11 June 2019.

The president, the representative Femi Gbajabiamila (APC-Lagos) swore in the representative Musa Sarki-Adar (APC-Sokoto), who was absent at the opening on Tuesday.

The position jury was administered by the secretary of the house, Mr. Patrick Giwa in the Abuja plenary.

The acquisition was delayed by about 8 minutes, as the microphone connected to the speaker seat did not work properly.

Gbajabiamila ordered the secretary to delegate some staff members to review the entire sound system every day before the plenary session began.

He also ordered the secretary to notify the President, the Senate and the Secretary of the Federal Government of Nigeria that the Chamber had elected Representative Femi Gbajabiamila and Representative Idris Wase as presiding officers and that he could now receive communications.

The Chamber in its inaugural plenary session hosted two Urgent Public Importance motions concerning safety and environmental risks.

Representative Benjamín Kalu (APC-Abia) presented a motion on the urgent need to address the erosion and flooding that plague Nkpa and the surrounding communities in the Bande federal district of Abia.

Representative Muraina Ajibola (PDP-Oyo) presented a motion on the need to address the wave of killings and kidnappings throughout the country.

The members unanimously voted in favor of the motions and Gbajabiamila established that the resolutions will be sent to the competent agencies for their implementation.
