Gbajabiamila honours petition of aggrieved Tiv indigenes abroad -  thenewwatcher

Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, has accepted the controversial petition from the “Mutual Union of the Tiv in America.”

The move might be to placate the angry Nigerians, who penultimate week, threatened to withhold their yearly remittance of over $23 billion to the country after the lower legislative chamber’s Deputy Speaker, Ahmed Wase, rejected same request.

Gbajabiamila, at plenary yesterday, honoured the petition after it was re-presented by Mark Gbillah (Benue: PDP) on behalf of the aggrieved Tiv indigenes.

He maintained that the Green Chamber would not discriminate against Nigerians regardless of place of residence.
