Vote us out in 2023 if you’re tired of us, Lawan tells Nigerians

Senate President, Ahmed Lawan, on Friday in Abuja, warned that there could be anarchy if the Senate is scrapped as being demanded by some Nigerians.

Rather, he said those uncomfortable with the senators in the current 9th Senate should vote them out in 2023 if they don’t want them to continue in office.

Lawan stated this while declaring open a retreat for top management staff of the National Assembly and National Assembly Service Commission in Abuja.

He described the Senate as a leveller which ensured that all parts of the country are equally represented, unlike the House of Representatives where states with higher populations produce the highest number of lawmakers.

The Senate President also faulted the argument of those clamouring for the scrapping of the Senate because of the perceived jumbo pay being earned by the senators.

He said the annual budget of the National Assembly is less than one per cent of the nation’s 2021 budget.
