Saraki: Senate to seek sack of incompetent ministers, others

Senate President Bukola Saraki has said that the Senate will recommend the immediate removal from office ministers and other presidential aides who fail to measure up in the Federal Government’s efforts to exit the country from economic recession.

Saraki also said that the Senate would next week invite all those involved in the management of the economy to tell Nigerians what steps they were taking to rescue the economy from recession.

A statement by the Special Adviser, media and publicity, to the Senate President, Yusuph Olaniyonu said that Saraki spoke during an interactive Town Hall meeting on Sunday tagged ‘#AskSaraki’, which was organized for constituents of his Kwara Central Senatorial district, as part of the activities to mark the Eid-el-Kabir celebrations.

Saraki was quoted to have said, “Those of us that you have elected into office are aware of the difficult economic situation in our country. We know we have to find a solution as fast as possible. We have no option. Once the Senate resumes, we will invite all those involved in the management of the economy to explain to the people what they are doing to solve the problem. Whoever among them does not measure up to expectation in his or her explanation we will recommend that he should be removed. This is time for co-operation and exchange of ideas.

"As things stand, I understand your concerns and feel your pains about the economy. I assure you that we will work together to bring about legislative and policy solutions to address the lingering economic situation.”

As they are doing that, he should also remember to cut down the allowances to the Senators to help the paucity of fund in the treasury, I learnt in a country women brought their gold out to government for sell to help economic recession.

As long as it would not be done as a result of malice and personal vendetta, I concur but at the same time charity begins with him.
