Federal Character Must Be Observed In Appointment Of NASS Clerk



The Alliance for Good Governance

and Human Rights Watch International,
yesterday warned against nepotism,
jettisoning of federal character principle
and the public service rules (PSR) in the
appointment of a new Clerk of the National Assembly.

The group made the call in a statement
signed by the executive director, Trevor Pottle, executive secretary, Uchanna Richard and director Cooperative
Affairs, Rilwan Otedola, in Abuja.

The group called on President Muhammadu Buhari, Senate President,
Speaker, House of Representatives, Hon.
Femi Gbajabiamila and the Chairman, NASC, to abide by their oaths of office as leaders and stop this potential flagrant disregard of the Constitution and PSR.
According to the statement, “The attempted breach and abuse of the
Constitution is not only dangerous and
injurious to the stability of the NASS
bureaucracy but can also deepen ethnic and religious fault lines in the country.
