Reps query claim of diplomatic immunity by Executive Secretary Lake Chad Commission

The House of Representatives Thursday passed a motion ordering the suspension of Nigeria’s contribution to the Lake Chad Basin Commission (LCBC) until all issues of allegations of corruption against its Executive Secretary (ES), Mr. Sanusi Abdullahi, are satisfactorily investigated and resolved.

It further directed the Federal Ministry of Water Resources to issue a letter mandating him to hand over to the commission’s newly appointed ES since the former’s tenure had already expired.

The resolution followed a motion sponsored by Hon. Abubakar Chika Adamu (APC, Niger) which was brought under matters of urgent public importance on the urgent need to address the flagrant abuse of the authority and resolution of the House by the ES of the commission.
