The Presidency, is set to release a long list of distinguished Senators of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, that would end up in jail, before 2019.
This came as the Senate on Wednesday, summoned the Chairman of the Presidential Committee on Anti-Corruption, Prof. Itse Sagay, over comments credited to him, wherein he described the Red Chamber as a place harbouring “people of questionable character.”
Deputy Senate Leader, Senator Bala Ibn Na’Allah, moved the motion, and it was carried by other members
The erudite Professor, who has in recent times taken on the Senate, is to face the Ethics Committee, where he is expected to produce names of Lawmakers with questionable character.
The matter has been referred to the Ethics Committee, and is expected to report back within four weeks.
Recall, that the Senate had on Tuesday’s plenary, refused to confirm 27 Resident Electoral Commissioners, RECs, in protest of the retention of Ibrahim Magu, as the Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, by Buhari.
While threatening fire, Sagay had said: “That action is childish and irresponsible. Do they think Buhari is a man that can easily be threatened? My God! How can people of such character occupy the highest Legislative office in the country? Nigeria is finished!!!
“It is a great mistake and they will regret it.”
Sagay, had further insisted that the President could continue to appoint people in acting capacity, when necessary.
