Presidency Reacts To Okorocha’s Suggestion That Number Of Lawmakers Should Be Reduced




Lauretta Onochie, President Muhammadu Buhari Social Media aide has released her contribution to Senator Rochas Okorocha’s call for the reduction of lawmakers in Nigeria.

Recall that on Thursday, Okorocha had called for the reduction of the lawmakers representing each state.

According to him, the country cannot afford its expenditure anymore.

He said there is no sacrosanct thing being done by Senators and House of Representatives members that only senators could not do.

“Mr. President of the Senate, distinguished colleagues, let’s tell ourselves the truth. Look at the number of House of Representatives members and Senators.

“To me, what is too important that a House member is doing that a Senator from the same state is not doing?”

“It is time for us to sacrifice and I want to say that a Senator is enough to represent a State in order to cut cost. We must do sacrifice for the nation. ”

Reacting, Onochie took to her Twitter page, and praised the former governor for his suggestion at the senate, adding that he had spoken the mind of Nigerians.

Onochie wrote: “I never thought that we would hear this on the floor of our National Assembly. In Nigeria. Wow!

“I must applaud Sen. Okorocha for his bravery. I hope he spoke the mind of the majority of our Assembly men and women because he spoke the mind of most Nigerians. God bless Nigeria.”
