Abuja — Amina Aliyu has appealed to the Farouk Lawan led ad hoc committee probing oil subsidy scam to tender justice with mercy.
This is coming on the heels of allegation that members of the probe committee were offered a jet filed with dollars which they allegedly rebuffed.
Aliyu, a former member who represented Wamba, Akwanga Federal Constituency made the call in Abuja yesterday after meeting with North Central women leaders in Abuja.
The lawmaker argued that for the fact that a woman is heading Nigeria National petroleum commission (NNPC), she is convinced that the organisation will be more prudent 'we Women are solidly behind our own' she insisted.
'Much of these issues (oil subsidy) we are talking about had been there before she was made as a minister to head the organisation. We are not against accountability but we must not forget that we are living in a glass house, PDP cannot afford to be throwing stones in a glass house.
Speaking further the parliamentarian went biblical: 'We must pray for our leaders and not pull them down; that is what God says. We must help them to govern well; we must not envy our leaders but pray. This blood letting must end. The masses are suffering it'.
'The House of Representatives must tender justice with mercy so that we can move forward. I appeal to the National Assembly especially the lower chamber.
The government is of the PDP, therefore I feel the party should not fail in handling this matter (probe) with all necessary understanding,' she counseled.
