WARRIâ€”MEMBER representing the Warri Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives, Mr Daniel Reyenieju, has appealed to his colleagues in the House to be more mature in their use of words and avoid using words that could portray the House in bad light.
Speaking to Vanguard in a telephone chat,Â while reacting to the emerging crisis in the House, Reyenieju said while he hold all theÂ members of the aggrieved group, and the entire House in high esteem, he would, however, not be a party to such threats by any individual, who for whatever reason openly boasted that â€œthey will make the House ungovernable.â€
Reyenieju said, the â€œHouse of Representatives belongs to the Nigerian people and it is structured on rules and procedures, which have earned it its â€˜hallowedâ€™ character.”
The Nigerian people are watching us, particularly at this historical juncture when much is expected to be legislated on.
â€œCan such expectations be accomplished in an environment of such treats and intimidations,â€ Reyenieju queried.
He noted that any crisis in the House at this time could possibly be misconstrued by a section of the public and same taken as a ploy by the House to divert the attention of the public.
The lawmaker appealed to whoever might feel aggrieved to desist from the present pattern of â€˜runningâ€™ to the media to vent their anger, an â€œaction that will not auger well for the House and the National Assembly as an entity,â€ he said.
