2023: Vote us out if you’re tired of our faces, Lawan tells Nigerians | Nigerian News. Latest Nigeria News. Your online Nigerian Newspaper. f

President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan, has warned that there could be anarchy if the Senate is scrapped as being clamoured by some Nigerians.

 

Rather, he challenged those who are not comfortable with the senators in the current 9th Senate to vote them out in 2023 if they don’t like their faces.

 

Lawan stated this on Friday while declaring open, a retreat for top management staff of the National Assembly and National Assembly Service Commission in Abuja.

 

He described the Senate as a leveler which ensured that all parts of the country are equally represented unlike the House of Representatives where states with higher populations produce the highest number of lawmakers.

 

The Senate President also faulted the argument of those clamouring for the scrapping of the Senate because of the perceived jumbo pay being earned by the senators.


He said the annual budget of the National Assembly is less than one per cent of the nation’s 2021 budget.

  1. NASS should be scrapped immediately and the re-structuring of the contraption. Lawn wants people to wait until they suck every blood from the country more time to show us more incompetence and corruption. At every step of the 9th senate they have shown they're an appendage of the executive. Completely useless and have killed every ethos of democratic institutions. A rubber stamp assembly!

  2. Scrapping NASS won't do us well as a nation, however, a unicameral legislative system is what we want. Enough of the jumbo pay from tax payers money.
