Itse Sagay, the chairman of the Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption, PACAC, said on Thursday, May 10, 2018, he could not wait for the current Senate, which he described as the worst since 1999, to go next year.
He faulted the lawmakers’ insistence on Ibrahim Idris, the Inspector-General of Police, personal appearance before them.
He told the Nation Newspaper: “You know I have never been impressed by this Senate. It’s probably the worst we have ever had since the return to civilian rule. They are more concerned about exercising vain authority and power than in actually doing anything substantive for the country.
“These are people – the whole Senate – who would adjourn sitting and go to the Code of Conduct Tribunal in solidarity with their President. For every day they go, the work of legislation is suspended. And they owe a duty to this country to make the laws for the order, peace and good government of Nigeria.
“As if that was not enough, the whole Senate packed themselves again to visit Dino Melaye in the hospital. How rational is that? Why can’t they send a delegation of two or three people who would report back? So, it’s like a showoff of power and intimidation. I don’t think it’s really worthy of them to behave like that.”
