Soldiers Insistence On Searching Tambuwal’s Car Unfortunate, Slap On Legislature – Aide Says

TambuwallThe Special Adviser to Speaker of the House of Representatives on Media, Imam Imam, has condemned the incident in Kaduna on Monday, where soldiers subjected his boss, Hon. Aminu Tambuwal, to a search.

Imam said it was highly unusual for security operatives to search an official car of the Speaker, more so, when he was inside the car.

We had earlier reported that soldiers stationed at the entrance to a hotel in Kaduna, which served as venue for the international conference on security and development challenges of pastoralism in West and Central Africa, had insisted on subjecting the speaker’s official car to a search in spite of the visibility of the flag and the coat of arms of his office.

Describing the incident as unfortunate, the speaker’s spokesman noted that the action of the soldiers could undermine the nation’s democracy.

He said, “What they are doing is undermining the legislature as a whole. It is not about the Speaker but the institution.

“We are just urging them (security) to be mindful of the fact that the institution must be protected at all times.

“The constitution provides that the integrity and sanctity of both the legislature and the executive arms of government must be protected at all times. If it cannot be protected, then it is unfortunate”, Imam said.

  4. Oga Imam there is nothing wrong in searching your car. They call security agents. As long as they are doing their work with due respect to the citizens, please allow them. A Clear conscience fear no accusation they says. What if may be an unknown person has put dangerous or harmful thing in you car without your knowledge. You sit there in the car, somebody drive you, another person is the mechanic and other things. They only want to be sure that you all are saved. At least, leadership by example. After all nobody is above the law. Please be understanding

  7. Eze, you sound like an unrefined element. It is glaring to uninformed people, audible to the deaf and visible to the blind that the activity of Boko Haram is totally contrary to the preaching of islam. Jonathan and his co-evil plotters know exactly what is happening in Nigeria. They are just disguising under the umbrella of Boko Haram. Almighty Allah will surely expose and disgrace whoever is responsible for the insecurity menace in Nigeria insha Allah.

  8. When will this people admit that they are the world biggest problem, anybody saying Islam is for peace is blind, I have been with them for long they are the bad. Good in shedding blood.

  9. Eze,the likes of u are the major terror we have in these country! If u have some thing to say about bokos why not say it instead of generalizing all muslims if you do not know what to say just shut up and remain silent for ever you moron! Fool

  10. Christianity is all about love. Christianity preaches and emphasizes that we love our neighbours as ourselves, christianity also teaches us to forgive 70 times (*) 70 . Definitely, in a land Where Love and Forgiveness abound, there would sure be peace. Jesus died for you and me, because he loved us and he still loves us. My dear brothers and sisters let us put away our differences and embrace love, let us love our neighbours and all those around us, let us love all humans irrespective of their differences, let us forgive all those that trespass against us and see if there would not be peace. May love, forgiveness and peace abound in Nigeria in JESUS Name I Pray Amen

  12. Emma, if u think muslims are bad what are u still doing with them? Even ur so called christianity what do you know about it? U evil thinker u can never stop islam from growing cos is a guided religion so u can go to hell for I care fool

Wat we need here is contribution and advice of how to make dis country as great as america. We both muslim&christen are one. Ilamic means for peace, while christen also means for believer. And in my view, we both serving only one GOD which is ALLAH. Pls my brothers and sisters, all we need is prayer. {Salam/alaikum}

  14. Let learn to respect other people religion no matter the situation…….We are too religious but we are not righteous,what bring the issue of christian and muslim in this matter……searching d speaker is not a crime but he must be accorded d respect of his position as a speaker….
