Chairman of the Presidential Advisory Committee against Corruption(PACAC), Prof. Itse Sagay has described the Nigerian Senate under Bukola Saraki’s leadership as the worst in Nigeria’s history.
Sagay, while reacting to the recent problems between the Senate and the Inspector General of Police, said that the Senate had a vendetta against the IG. He revealed that he was not a fan of the current Senate and accused it of abdicating its responsibilities. He told Nation;
“You know I have never been impressed by this Senate. It’s probably the worst we have ever had since the return to civilian rule. They are more concerned about exercising vain authority and power than in actually doing anything substantive for the country.
These are people, the whole Senate – who would adjourn sitting and go to the Code of Conduct Tribunal in solidarity with their President. For everyday they go, the work of legislation is suspended. And they owe a duty to this country to make the laws for the order, peace and good government of Nigeria.
Each time they abandon their legislative duties, they’re in fact committing a breach of their obligation, apart from the fact that doing that sort of thing is infantile.
As if that was not enough, the whole Senate packed themselves again to visit Dino Melaye in the hospital. How rational is that? Why can’t they send a delegation of two or three people who would report back? So, it’s like a showoff of power and intimidation.”
