Any Request From President Muhammadu Buhari Would Make Nigeria A Better Place - SENATE PRESIDENT

ABUJA, NIGERIA - A declaration was on Thursday (yesterday) made by the President of the Nigerian Senate, Ahmad Lawan, that any request made by President Muhammadu Buhari is nothing but in the interest of the country. 

Senator Ahmad Lawan particularly stated that such request would make Nigeria a better place, and such would be acted on “expeditiously.”

Speaking when the Chairman, Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption, Itse Sagay, paid him a visit in his office, Senator Ahmad Lawan said: “This is a new Senate. Going by our rules and I believe that goes for the House of Reps too, any issue that was not concluded in the last National Assembly, will have to start all over again.

“So, as far as we are concerned, those bills will have to come again and start to go through the process from the very beginning.

“We are ready. In fact, we are in a haste if those bills are ready for us to start working on them.

"There is no request before the Senate for the confirmation of the acting chairman of the EFCC.

“I want to assure you that any request that comes from Mr President is a request that will make Nigeria a better place in terms of appointments or legislation.

“When such request comes, the Senate will act expeditiously to ensure that we play our part in the confirmation or passing of legislation appropriately.”

It would be recalled that Itse Sagay had during the visit requested for the timely passage of the Special Criminal Court and other similar bills, adding that such would  help the anti-corruption war and ensure that the fight was successfully won with speed and energy.

Itse Sagay had equally extended an appeal to the red chamber of the National Assembly to consider the confirmation of the acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu.
