Senate’ll Reconvene Over Ministerial List - Ekweremadu

Deputy Senate President, Senator Ike Ekweremadu, Sunday, assured Nigerians of the Senate’s readiness to reconvene though on recess, if President Muhammadu Buhari, sends his ministerial list. Ekweremadu spoke in Enugu when the Zonal Management of Nigerian Television Authority, NTA, paid him a courtesy visit. According to the ECOWAS Parliament Speaker: ”Though we are on recess, most of us are very much around doing other legislative duties. Therefore, if the need arises, we will quickly reconvene to give Nigerians the service we were elected to offer, especially if the ministerial list is sent by the President.”
 

 

He assured that the Senate will at all times put the interest of Nigerians first. On the issue of pay cut of members of the National Assembly, Ekweremadu explained that they are prepared to make sacrifices in the interest of Nigerians, even as he revealed that the leadership did not consult their colleagues in the House of Representatives on the issue. He, however, stated that the National Assembly had already cut its budget from N150 to N120 billion. Reacting to the outcome of his visit to Nairobi, Kenya, the Deputy Senate President noted that insurgency is a continental issue that all African leaders and countries must join forces to weed out. He stated that insurgency undermines the development of any nation while indicating that the Parliament had a big role to play in addressing the vice by setting up special tribunals that would deal with such issue.
