Senate President Ahmad Lawan has called on Nigerians to vote out the members of the 9th National Assembly in 2023 if they don’t like them.
Lawan stated this on Friday, November 20, at a retreat for top management of the National Assembly Service Commission and National Assembly in Abuja.He urged Nigerians to engage in debate as to what the National Assembly means to them rather than dissipate energy on jumbo salaries and allowance of the federal lawmakers.
According to him, “What does the legislature mean to Nigerians? Can we debate properly what the functions of members of the National Assembly and indeed the legislature should be rather than be talking about jumbo pay?
We should be looking for value for money. Without the National Assembly or the legislature across the country, we won’t have a democracy anymore.
We need to understand what the National Assembly or the legislature means to Nigerians.”
