Reps ask Jonathan to sack Oteh

By on March 22, 2013

The troubles of the Director General of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), Arunma Oteh seem far from over as the House of Representatives has insisted that President Goodluck Jonathan should implement the resolution of the House by removing her from office.

Coming under matters of urgent importance, the House adopted the resolution after considering a motion moved by Garba Datti on the blatant disregard of resolutions by the House of Representatives.

House Minority Leader, Femi Gbajabiamila said the motion is provoked by President Jonathan’s letter to the National Assembly.

He said President Jonathan in the letter reopened the issue by stating that the National Assembly went outside its mandate by not appropriating funds to sec.

The lower chamber directed the House Committee on Legislative Compliance to monitor and ensure that the resolution is implemented by the executive.
