Following their decision to boycott a scheduled sectoral debate organised by the House of Representatives on the Steel sector, focusing on the Ajaokuta Steel Company, the House has passed a vote of no-confidence in the minister of Mines and Steel, Kayode Fayemi and his state’s counterpart, Bawa Bwari.
The resolution followed a motion moved by the leader of the House, Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila, who urged the House to pass a no confidence vote in the duo for holding the House in Contempt by their refusal to honour invitation.
The Speaker of the House, Yakubu Dogara had read out a letter purportedly written by the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry, Abubaka Muazu, informing the House of the minister’s inability to honour the invitation.
The letter was in response to an invitation sent by the House on February 16, 2018 but was not responded to until two days to the debate.
