Buhari Will Fight To Have A Better Senate In 2019 – Tinubu by yns4real: 6:16am On Dec 04
The senator representing Lagos Central Senatorial District, Oluremi Tinubu, has expressed the belief that President Muhammadu Buhari will work hard to ensure that the nation has a better Senate in the 9th Assembly.

She said it was important for the President to do so in order to forestall a repeat of the present situation in which she said the upper chamber of the National Assembly was populated by some people who are frustrating Buhari’s efforts aimed at repositioning the country.

Tinubu spoke in Lagos on Saturday during a media luncheon where she unveiled her plans for the senatorial district for 2019-2023.

While responding to questions from journalists on the strained relationship between the legislative and executive arms of government, she said some members of the 8th Assembly were bent on frustrating Buhari’s programmes.

She said she was sure that Buhari would not want a repeat of what he witnessed with members of the present National Assembly.

She, therefore, urged Nigerians to re-elect Buhari for another term in order to complete his task.

Tinubu also called on Nigerians not to vote for the Peoples Democratic Party because the main opposition party was responsible for the hardships currently being experienced in the country.

She said Buhari would have learnt in his three and a half years in office that his inaugural statement that “I belong to everybody and I belong to nobody” was not exactly the way he thought.

She said, “I believe the President would have learnt a thing or two because when he came in, he said ‘I belong to everybody and belong to nobody.’ But I know by now that he knows those people that belong to him.

“What I am saying is not to take the President’s comment for granted, but now, I am sure he knows that some Nigerians are very dangerous to his decisions, even moving forward. The President should know those who are his own by now.

“It is a lesson to him and I know that he would fight to ensure that we have a better Senate in the 9th Assembly, not what we have now with a set of people who are frustrating his efforts. I do not think he would want to go through that route again.”

Tinubu said a term of four years was not enough for the President, hence the need for Nigerians to give the ruling All Progressives Congress another chance in 2019.

“Nigerians should give the APC another chance in 2019; four years is not enough for a President to complete his task, he is not a magician. We did not get to where we are overnight,” she said.

Speaking on her plan to return to the Senate, Tinubu said the leaders of her senatorial district convinced her to seek re-election.

“I am doing a third term because the leaders of my district asked me to contest. Beyond that, there is so much more to be done.

“I have shown through our quarterly town hall meetings that power belongs to and rests with the people. This third term is thus a chance to consolidate on previous achievements.

“To ensure that the third term is even more productive, we have set out to focus more on empowering our youths and finding ways to make them self-reliant.

“Through our quarterly town hall meetings, 27 in the series, I have been able to bond more effectively with our constituents,” she added.

Can you please enlighten us on just one way the NASS stopped buhari from effecting his alleged change?

-He had the majority,
-his requests were granted, even those without consent,
-he was never vetoed on bills,
-his powers were not usurped.

Bro. You just unequivocally attested to Buhari having a "rubber stamp" NASS except you were being sarcastic (which was highly uncalled for).

Mrs Remi is not calling for that, she is only indirectly citing situations where the budget was delayed, adjusted and padded by the NASS, key infrastructural projects were cut out or cut short; members joining opposing and rejecting bills for their individual interests.

Good, it is the prerogative of the NASS to cut out or cut short details not clear to them or Nigerians. But the Onus lies on preparing and pushing fast as to allow time for politicking and actual passage.

Are you aware 2019 budget has not even been prepared while 2018 was passed in June.

Re: Buhari Will Fight To Have A Better Senate In 2019 – Tinubu by donttouchme: 7:33am On Dec 04
The problem of nigeria is not senate but government bureaucracy and politics. Even if you remove national assembly, we will still get the same result. Until every nigeria remove the spirit of entitlement, we will continue to run the same circle. The structure on ground bleed failure. Even xi jin ping will fail as a nigerian president. Nigeria was brought together to fail. A country whose recurrent expenditure is 80% and capital expenditure is 20%. Until buhari or atiku tackle government bureaucracy and politics of entitlement with the view of balancing capital and recurrent expenditure, we will continue to wallow in wilderness and will continue to pass blame around.

What answer do you want? Is it not the same history we are all witnessing where Saraki an APC senate President, in name alone, acted like a PDP agent from day one to frustrate and impede the APC executive arm?

Folks like you are not worth indulging with more than one reply because you are not minimally honest. Admitting the truth is the basis upon which intelligent men discuss issues to find solutions.

No one in the world, except a dishonest person, will claim ignorance of how the Senate, under Saraki, has been an impediment to the executive arm, led by PMB, rather than an ally.

Are you for real?

https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/www.vanguardngr.com/2018/10/saraki-cant-continue-to-preside-over-an-apc-dominated-senate-apc/amp/



How will someone who emerged Senate President through conspiracy with members of the opposition Party and against the wishes and interests of his own party be trusted to be elected as the presidential candidate of a party? Even on his being elected to the position, did Saraki acquit himself creditably?

Throughout Saraki’s tenure as Senate President, it has been one confrontation between the National Assembly leadership with the Executive or another. Confirmation of Executive nominees sent to the Senate for confirmation has been delayed unnecessarily, annual national budgets delayed. For instance, the supplementary budget of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for the 2019 General Elections is continually delayed due to Saraki’s selfish political machinations.

‘A selfish Saraki will rather than perform his constitutional legislative functions by ensuring timely consideration and passage of Executive bills, will rather sabotage the efforts of the Executive in furtherance of his treacherous politics.

This statement is very damaging to PMB's re-election.

Knowing this will make most senators go all out to make sure a prospective right infringer don't assume office.

I thought the Senate is an independent body?

So, these people want to control even the senate too.

This is not healthy.
