THE Lower Chamber of the House of Representatives, yesterday, insisted on the removal of the Director-General of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), Ms. Aruma Oteh.
The lawmakers said that the refusal of President Goodluck Jonathan to remove her would not change their position.
Speaking on their behalf, spokesman of the Lower Chamber, Victor Ogene, said: “The House has not shifted ground on Oteh. Whatever happens now in SEC that is contrary to the position of the House is in breach of the law. At the appropriate time, whenever it is discovered that funds are still made available to SEC, we shall take action. The Appropriation Act can not be breached. It is one of the most important Acts in any democracy. Action will be taken against whoever person found responsible”.
