Senate adjourns for two weeks

The Senate on Tuesday adjourned for two weeks in view of the upcoming Islamic celebration, Id-el-Kabir.

The Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, thanked the lawmakers for their cooperation in the past week and wished the Muslims a happy celebration, as well as safe journey to those travelling home for the celebration.

Meanwhile, before the adjournment, the senate confirmed the appointment of Mukhtar Usman as the Director General of the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority, NCAA.

Mr. Usman was appointed by President Goodluck Jonathan six months after the sack of Fola Akinkuotu. The request for his confirmation was sent to the Senate President, David Mark.

Committee reports on the National Social Welfare, the discriminations against persons with disabilities and the Cyber Crime bills were also considered.

    The President see why you are gradually losing ground in the SW. How dare you sack Fola Akinkuotu and replace him with a Fulani, is there no body qualified in SW to take up the post? Mr President please use commonsense.

    I do wonder the account from which PMB pays his children’s school fees/ maintenance in the United Kingdom estimated by some to amount to about 14 million Naira per annum. Some have jokingly said Midland Bank. A serious answer is needed all the same. It may be that the Buhari household is much much richer than Buhari himself?. This then goes to raise the fundamental question on what an asset declaration should include or exclude.
