Senate’s Action On New RECs Childish, Irresponsible – Prof. Sagay

Prof Itse Sagay, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SA ), has stated that President Buhari would not be cowed by the Senate’s action which he described as an affront to the Presidency.

He 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.”

When asked what appropriate action Buhari could take, Sagay explained that Buhari could continue to appoint people in acting capacity where necessary.

He said the refusal to confirm the RECs was of no effect since officials of the INEC had been acting as RECs for over a year.

Sagay added, “Where the Senate is required to approve a person for a particular position and they refuse to do it, the person could continue to act depending on the nature of the appointment.

“However, if the nominee is coming from another sector, just like in the case of the RECs, it means they cannot act. However, people below that rank in INEC can continue to act as RECs all over the country as it has been done.”

He added, “What this action means is that the Senate is being occupied by the most unserious set of Nigerians in history. Nigeria is currently at its lowest level because we have people who have no sense of responsibility, who have no feeling and are there for just vanity and are ready to bring down the country in order to feel important, it is the worst case of abuse ever.

“Let them do what they want, they will regret it.”

    When you have right people at the helms of affairs it means we are complete but if you have wrong people at the helms of affairs, it means we are finished, this is to queue behind the assertion of Prof Sagay when he said we are finished to have such set of people at the exalted highest legislative chamber in the country.

  10. Good one...

    Thats jux the truth...

  11. Prof,you are really not a politician, all these your inflammatory statement will backfired you. Don't think that senators has no right to reject people submited to them by the president, don't think that the legislature will easily dance on tune of the executive. Padlock your mouth and allow the senators to do their job.
