Senate under Saraki has failed Nigerians - Senator Ndume


Bukola Saraki and Ali Ndume
Ali Ndume, APC Senator representing Borno South has said the Senate under the leadership of Dr Bukola Saraki has failed Nigerians.

The senator said this on Sunday in Abuja, adding that Saraki and Yakubu Dogara, Speaker of the House of Representatives, had privatized the legislative arm of government.

“I really want to admit that we have failed in our responsibility to the people somehow, but we the members are not responsible for that.

“It is more of the responsibility of the leadership that shut down the Senate abruptly because of personal issues.

“It is very unfortunate. The Senate is the Nigerian Senate, it is not the senator’s Senate; it is not Saraki’s senate,” he said.
Ndume also said that it was very unfortunate that the Nigerian National Assembly had been reduced to Saraki and Dogara.
“They have privatized and personalized the institution, and the reason we were elected to be there, had been relegated to the background.

“This is very unfortunate, but I want Nigerians to know that the Senate had not been shut down by the Senators or members of House of Representatives.

“The Senate was shut down by Saraki and Dogara and they should be held responsible for that,” Ndume added.
The Senator while expressing sadness that the Senate was yet to reconvene, stressed that the Senate must move on without Saraki.
