The President of the Senate, Ahmed Lawan, has warned that there could be uncontrollable anarchy in the country, if the Senate is scrapped, as being clamoured for by some Nigerians,
He called on those who are not comfortable with the Senators in the current 9th Senate, to rather vote them out of Office in 2023, if they do not like their faces.
Senator Lawan stated this on Friday, while declaring open, a Retreat for top management staff of the National Assembly, and National Assembly Service Commission, in Abuja.
He described the Senate as a leveler, which ensures that all parts of the country are equally represented, unlike the House of Representatives, where States with higher populations produce the highest number of Lawmakers.
The Senate President also faulted the argument of those clamouring for the scrapping of the Senate, because of the perceived jumbo pay being earned by the Senators.
He said that the annual budget of the National Assembly is less than one percent of the nation’s 2021 budget.
