President Buhari Nominee Tells Senate ''Senate Should Be Scrapped..''

LOL....

A nominee of President Muhamadu Buhari for the position of national commissioner of the Nigerian Communications Commission, NCC, Aliyu Abubakar, told senators, before whom he appeared for screening on Wednesday, that the Senate should be scrapped.




Mr. Abubakar, nominated to represent North East on the NCC board, told the Senate committee on communications chaired by Gift Nnaji (PDP-Enugu) that the upper legislative arm was a waste of resources and, therefore, “must go”.
Mr. Abubakar, Bauchi State, participated in the #OccupyNASS campaign, months ago, seeking end to bicameral legislature, scrapping of the Senate and removal of Bukola Saraki as Senate President in view of his corruption trial at the Code of Conduct Tribunal.


One of the committee members challenged Mr. Abubakar on why he led a protest against the Senate, same body he faced to be screened and confirmed for appointment.

He was confronted with photographs of himself and others protesting at the NASS gate and asking that the Senate be scrapped.
But an unrepentant Mr. Abubakar not only owned up to participating in the organised action against the Senate, but insisted and gave reasons why it should be scrapped.

That senators receive huge transport, wardrobe and dressing allowances and they purchase expensive cars from public purse, an economic loss to the country, Mr. Abubakar said.

“The Senate is an avenue for wastage of scarce economic resources of the country… Senate must go,” he said.

Addressing reporters after the session with the Senate committee, he attempted to clarify his position, saying that he only admitted to participating in the protest against NASS and stated reasons why he did.
“It is not true that I told members of the committee that the Senate should be scrapped. They asked me whether I was part of the group that agitated for the scrapping of the Senate and I said yes because of so many things involved in the Senate and their budget.

“They asked me to state the reasons why we were agitating for the scrapping of the Senate, I said it is because of their huge budget; they consume a lot of resources from the government; they put it in their own budget.
“Also, they have transport allowance and, yet, they budget a lot of money to acquire vehicles.”

Still, when asked if he stood by his position during the protest, he said, “The Senate must go because something has to be done to cut down the expenses on the Senate. I still maintain that.”

      @Ogwe, if you read well, you will know, unicameral only works in small country like Ghana, all countries with large populations practice bicameral, cus its the best, in Bicameral you can't maneuver the law in your way, and bills are properply debated on b4 becoming law, because of bicameral, public opinion are put into consideration b4 it becomes a law..
      ..........

    4. He is absolutely correct, no reasonable bills to move the nation forward but their pocket forward, a senate agitating for immunity for her corrupt leaders, instead of passing a stiffer punishment for all political rogues.

  18. Honestly he has a point. But realistically it's not a motion that will see the light of day. And he just kised his nomination goodbye.

    ReplyDelete
  19. This one just kissed his nomination goodbye. They will never allow that 'insult ' to go. It will hound him through every appointment, except one that doesn't need approval of the senate.

    Of course, he can't deny, when pictorial evidence is there so best thing is what he did, form bravado and stand your ground and then hope, they'll be executive pressure to push you through
