New Year: Senate President sets agenda for Nigerian Senate
Nigeria’s Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki, has set the pace for new areas the Senate will focus in 2016. Saraki presented his agenda to Senators at their first Senate plenary for the year 2016.
Saraki said, “Our vision is to substantially enhance the economic wellbeing, liberty and safety of our people. It is my earnest hope that the period of recess just concluded has afforded us all opportunity to reflect on this enormous task ahead as we now enter into the business end of delivering on our agenda.
Saraki also urged his colleagues to be transparent in their legislative activities as well as commit to service delivery to Nigerians.
“Distinguished colleagues, 2016 must be the year of transparency and delivery. We must demonstrate to Nigerian people who put us in office that we are working in their interest to ensure a progressive and inclusive national development plan. The overarching objective of our agenda remains to work with the executive arm to find solution to economic stagnation, wastefulness, discrimination, unemployment, insecurity, corruption and impunity.”
