List Of Senators Who Have Contributed To National Development

Yesterday we published a story on the list of 10 Senators who have spent a year without presenting a single bill that will bring national development.

Senate President, Senator Ahmad Lawan and former Governor of Kano, Mallam Ibrahim Shekarau (APC, Kano), are among a list of 10 senators who have spent a year without a single resolution.

Section 4 of the 1999 Constitution as amended states that the responsibility of The National Assembly is “to make laws for the peace, order and good government of the Federation or any part thereof with respect to any matter included in the Exclusive Legislative List”.

The first task of every member of parliament is to present a bill that is in line with the needs of the communities they represent and to monitor the conduct of affairs in the Ministries, Institutions and Government Agencies.

The new 9th Senate was sworn in on June 11, 2019, and since then, more than 450 bills have been proposed, according to a study by the Daily Trust.

On the contrary, there are a number of senators who have introduced bills in the Senate, some of which have already become part of the constitution.

Senator Yahaya Abdullahi of the All Progressives Congress (APC), representing Kebbi North, spent most of his time proposing more than 30 bills. The only reason for this is that every resolution passed by the House of Representatives follows.

Next in line is Senator Stella Oduah (PDP, Anambra), who introduced 29 resolutions.

The third is the Vice President of the Senate, Ovie Omo-Agege (APC, Delta) who has introduced 22 resolutions.

Most of Omo-Agege’s previous resolutions were those seeking to amend the constitution while he was chairman of the constitutional review committee.
