Niger: House urge FG to lift state of emergency

Niger State House of Assembly has pass a motion urging the Federal Government to lift the state of emergency it imposed on Suleja and its environs because of bomb attacks in the area.

Alhaji Jibrin Bawa, member representing Suleja Constituency, called on the senators representing Niger in the National Assembly, to persuade the Federal Government and the National Assembly to lift the emergency order.

He recalled that President Goodluck Jonathan on the thirty-first of December 2011, declares the state of emergency on Suleja in accordance with section 305; subsection (2) of the 1999 constitution.

Following the declaration, a 12-hour curfew was imposed on Suleja and its environs.

Alhaji Bawa said “that the six pm to six am curfew imposed on Suleja metropolis and its environs has lapsed because of the declaration in accordance with the provisions of the constitution”.

The legislator therefore urged the government to lift the curfew saying that peace and normalcy has been restored in the area.

The House unanimously passed the motion and urged the Federal Government to withdraw the military from the area to enable the people enjoy their constitutional liberty.
