The Senate yesterday faulted the Nigeria Police on the production and sales of the Enhanced Central Motor Registry (ECMR).
The Senators pointedly told the police that it was illegal and unconstitutional for them not to carry along the principal stakeholder; the Federal Road Safety Commission(FRSC) in the issuance of the new scheme.
Besides the condemnation of the police, the chairman, senate committee on Federal Character and Inter-Governmental Affairs, Dahiru Kuta also advised the Minister of Information, Labaran Maku to desist from unguarded statement on the resolutions of the National Assembly.
Kuta, who spoke while the representative of the Inspector General of Police, Mr. Abdul-Rahan Akano who is the Deputy Inspector General of Police in charge of ICT, appeared before the committee said, "I must at this point, however, advise the Minister of Information, the spokesman and the image-maker of this government to desist from unguarded statements on the resolutions of the National Assembly.
“His comment on this matter was ill-timed, preemptive, unfortunate, insensitive, inciting and uncalled for, in advanced democratic countries, resolutions of the Legislature are taken seriously and serve as a guide to the Executive.
"After all, we are not at war with the Executive. We do not intend to be at war with any arm of government. The well-being and welfare of the people is the main concern of this administration. Therefore, all our actions must be in the best interest of the masses and not to be condemned by anyone, not even, a government spokesperson.
