National Assembly debate Buhari's executive order
 
Lawmakers in the House of Representatives are debating the motion seeking the suspension of President Muhammadu Buhari’s Executive Order 6, according to Channels Television.
 
The lawmakers on Wednesday during plenary called for an investigation into the constitutional compliance of all subsidiary legislation and executive orders by the executive arm of government.
 
According to the motion, sponsored by Rep. Nicholas Ossai, and supported by 27 other lawmakers, the Executive Order number 6 of 2018, signed by President Muhammadu Buhari appears to hijack and usurp legislative and judicial powers.
 
With the signing of the Executive Order 6, President Buhari is to clamp down on assets said to have been corruptly acquired by top government officials either directly or through their fronts over the years.
 
The order also seeks to restrain owners of assets under investigation from carrying out any further transaction on such assets.
 
The decision has, however, attracted criticisms from some Nigerians who questioned its constitutionality
