The 10th Senate under the leadership of Godswill Akpabio has rejected calls to cut down on its expenses, despite the economic hardship occasioned by the removal of fuel subsidy.

The Chairman of the Senate Committee on Media and Public Affairs, Senator Yemi Adaramodu made this known while speaking to journalists in Ilorin, Kwara state, on Monday, September 4, 2023.

According to him, the National Assembly is not responsible for any economic hardship experienced in Nigeria.

He pointed out that lawmakers play many important roles, including committee work and oversight, without any allowances attached.

He made the remarks moments after a tribunal ruled in his favour, upholding his electoral victory against Senator Biodun Olujimi of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

The removal of fuel subsidy has significantly contributed to the economic hardships faced in the country.

The Senate has recently been perceived as out of touch with the reality of most Nigerians, especially following Senate President Godswill Akpabio’s announcement of distributing ‘tokens‘ to lawmakers to facilitate their holidays.
