'Saraki And Dogara Have Privatised The National Assembly' - Ndume
The All Progressives Congress (APC) senator representing Borno South in the Senate, Ali Ndume, said the Senate under the leadership of Bukola Saraki had failed Nigerians.
Ndume stated this on Sunday in Abuja, adding that Saraki and Yakubu Dogara, Speaker of the House of Representatives, had privatised 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 senators’ Senate; it is not Saraki’s senate,” he said.
Ndume added that it was very unfortunate that the Nigerian National Assembly had been reduced to Messrs Saraki and Dogara.
He further added that Messrs Saraki and Dogara had privatised and personalised the Nigerian legislative arm of government which should not be the case.
