Arewa Assembly wants ex-speaker probed over anti-govt stance

Arewa Youth Assembly has petitioned the Police and the Department of State Services (DSS) to investigate its former speaker, Mohammed Salihu Danlami over attacks on the federal government’s economic policies.

In the petition signed by its new speaker, Tahir Muhammad Azare, the assembly said that the impeached former speaker, Danlami was still going about mobilizing his cronies to discredit President Muhammadu Buhari’s economic policies and carry out smear campaign against the Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria, Godwin Emefiele.

Danlami was on Thursday sacked as the speaker over his actions, which the assembly said were antithetical to its resolutions.

The petition said: “The expulsion of Mohammed Salihu Danlami followed confirmed reports of using the name of our organisation to attack the economic agenda of the government of President Muhammadu Buhari, maligning the Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria, Mr. Godwin Emefiele, threatening the economy of the country and national security.

“As a result, they are said to be planning to stage protests in Abuja to call attention to their unfounded statements about Mr. Emefiele and the Nigerian economy.

“We are by this letter calling on all relevant security agencies to nip this in the bud by calling Salihu Danlami for questioning with a view to identifying his sponsors and the extent of their plans to pull down the economy of the country.”
