CACOL calls for scrapping of Nigerian Senate
The Centre for Anti-corruption and Open Leadership, CACOL has called for immediate scrapping of Nigerian Senate.
Speaking at a press conference in Lagos Thursday, CACOL ‘s Executive Chairman, Comrade Debo Adeniran said the Senate as presently constituted may succeed in finally destroying the country.
He said the Upper Chamber is prodigal and has become a burden saying “we need to discharge ourselves from the unnecessary burden “.
Adeniran said: “As at now the Senate has degenerated to the level of constituting the leading clog in a government it’s supposed to be part of.
“The refusal by the Senate to screen 27 Residents Electoral Commissioners, REC for the Independent National Electoral Commission ,INEC and the basing of such illogical decision on the President’s ‘refusal ‘ to sack Magu as Acting Chairman of EFCC is a pointer to the stagnations that the country suffers almost in every aspects”, Adeniran said.
He further said that while majority of Nigerians are wallowing in abject penury, the Senate with bare-faced effrontery and insensitivity have continued to engage in acts that will without any doubts result into greater calamities.
“The National Assembly was recently said to have purchased a shatter -proof Sports Utility Van, SUV at the exorbitant amount of N298M under the current perilous economic situation where many barely exist owing to the pangs of the period. This shows the insensitivity of the lawmakers to the sufferings, pains and groaning of the people”,Adeniran further said.
