Those calling ninth senate a rubber stamp were right- Adamawa senator



Binos Yaroe, senator representing Adamawa south, says those calling the ninth senate a rubber stamp were right.


Yaroe spoke on Saturday during the valedictory session of the ninth senate.


The lawmaker cited the N22.7 trillion extra-budgetary spending approved by the national assembly as one of those occasions the parliament earned the “rubber stamp” label.


The senator said the suspension of Godwin Emefiele as the governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) is a “mild” indictment on the national assembly.


 “I agree with those who say the ninth senate is a rubber stamp. Furthermore, the suspension of the governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Godwin Emefiele, and subjecting him to investigation is a mild indictment of the national assembly,” he said.


“This is so because if we had done our oversight duties properly, we would not have gotten to this level.”


Yareo expressed hope that the incoming senators would adhere to the standing rules.


 “I also hope that the 10th senate will operate and adhere to its own rules, take their rules on the procedures of the bills in rules 76, 77 and 78 for instance, that state that bills that are being read should be circulated to all senators,” he said.


“But very often, bills passed first and second reading without senators reading through them.”
