Borno South Senator, Ali Ndume, has lamented the leadership of the Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki which he said, has resulted in making the 8th Senate the worst in terms of attendance at plenary.
Speaking as the special guest on the News Agency of Nigeria Forum in Abuja, Senator Ndume said that the “bad leadership” provided by the Senate President has made the situation to be so complicated, adding that it had never been this bad since he joined the National Assembly as a House of Representatives member in 2003.
“The 8th Senate is the worst I have seen in terms of attendance, and it is because of the bad leadership of Saraki. This is the first time we had to adjourn the Senate for lack of quorum.
“Since I came to the National Assembly, two terms in the House of Representatives, and two terms now in the Senate, it had never been like this.
“So, I was shocked that day (November 13). I came a bit late, and when I entered the chambers, I was told we had adjourned because there was no quorum, and that only 14 people or there about turned up.
“It’s just terrible,’’ lamented the All Progressives Congress lawmaker, who is seeking a third term in the Senate.
