-Former National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress(APC) and Edo North Senator-elect Adams Oshiomhole has disclosed that the President-elect Asiwaju Bola Tinubu would not encourage a rubber stamp National Assembly.
The former Edo State governor gave the indication on Tuesday in Abuja shortly after the presentation of certificates of return to him as one of the Senators-elect.
Oshiomhole noted that Tinubu looks forward to a senate that would contribute to the country’s development.
The former Nigerian Labour Congress, NLC, said he would not be part of a “legislature for the powerful but for the countrymen”.
He promised that the Senate would legislate in a way that ensures Nigerians get value for money.
“We are not there for the allowance. Even the president-elect will not look forward to a rubber stamp assembly but the one that can help to contribute to knowledge.”
The ex-National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, said the next Senate would work for economic growth, robust GDP and power reforms.
Oshiomhole added that the government must find the courage to deal with a system that makes citizens pay bills for power they did not consume.
