Rep. Muraina Ajibola (PDP-Oyo) moved a motion on the need to address the spate of killing and kidnapping across the country.
Members unanimously voted in favour of the motions and Speaker, Femi Gbajabiamila ruled that the resolutions be forwarded to relevant agencies for implementation.
Meanwhile, the House commenced the plenary with inauguration of members.
The Speaker, Rep. Femi Gbajabiamila (APC-Lagos) swore-in Rep. Musa Sarki-Adar (APC-Sokoto) who was absent at the Tuesday’s inauguration.
The oath of office was administered by the Clerk of the house, Mr Patrick Giwa at plenary in Abuja.
The swearing-in was delayed for about eight minutes as the microphone attached to the seat of the speaker was malfunctioning.
Gbajabiamila ordered the clerk to delegate some members of staff to check the entire sound system daily before the commencement of plenary.
