However, the Deputy Majority Leader, Hon Abdullahi Ibrahim Halims, opposed the suggestion, arguing that “matters like that are always determined by court and not by parliamentary decision”.

Deputy Speaker, Hon. Benjamin Kalu, in his intervention said “the motion moved by Hon. Ginger was to find an amicable way of resolving the issue with regards to Nnamdi Kanu and what the prayer of the amendment should read is to urge Mr President to use any other diplomatic or political approach to grant that, this is before the court to find a lasting solution on this issue because those of us from the region know where it’s pitching us”.

In his ruling, Speaker Tajudeen Abbas said, “this is a topical issue, my ruling on this is that I will defer ruling on this at this particular time and I will invite both the minority and majority leaders so that we can consult and see what the point of the law says before I make my own position known.

“So while I rule on other motions and amendment that have been proposed, that particular one is suspended for ruling next week after due consultation”.
