10th NASS: 24 Senators Have No Bill In One Year by RabbleRouser: 8:16am On Jun 11


ABUJA — Almost one year after they were inaugurated, no fewer than 24 of the 109 senators drawn from all parts of the country are yet to sponsor any bill in the upper chamber of the National Assembly. However, each of the other 85 senators has at least one bill to his or her name.


The 10th Senate, which was inaugurated on June 13, 2023, will be one year on Thursday. A review of the activities of the 109 senators with regard to sponsoring of bills shows that 279 bills were sponsored between July 13, 2023, and March 2024.

Lawmaking is one of the statutory and primary functions of legislators

The Senate is made up of 109 members of which 14 were former governors until two — Senators David Umahi (APC, Ebonyi South), and Ibrahim Geidam (APC, Yobe East) were appointed Ministers of Works, and Police Affairs respectively by President Bola Tinubu.

The number of former governors in the Red Chamber increased with the coming of former Plateau State governor, Senator Simon Lalong (APC, Plateau South) who was sworn in as a senator in December 2023 to replace Senator Napoleon Bali (PDP, Plateau South) after a judgment of the Appeal Court.
Recall that Senators Ani, Dachungyang and Mustapha were inaugurated into the Senate very late after the lawmakers took off. While Ani replaced Umahi, Dachungyang replaced the former Minority Leader, Mwadkwon Simon Davou, and Mustapha replaced Ibrahim Geidam.


Ex-governors in the Senate
Former governors currently in the 10th Senate are 13. They are Orji Uzor Kalu (APC, Abia North); Senate President Godswill Akpabio (APC, Akwa Ibom North West); Seriake Dickson (PDP, Bayelsa West), Adams Oshiomhole (APC, Edo North), Ibrahim Dankwambo (PDP, Gombe North), Danjuma Goje (APC, Gombe Central), Adamu Aliero (PDP, Kebbi Central), Sani Bello (APC, Niger North), Gbenga Daniel (APC, Ogun East), Aminu Tambuwal (PDP, Sokoto South), Aliyu Wammako (APC, Sokoto North), Simon Lalong (APC, Plateau South), and Abdulaziz Yari (APC, Zamfara West).


Among the 13 former governors, nine sponsored bills within the period under review. They are Orji Uzor Kalu, five bills; Senate President Godswill Akpabio, two; Senator Gbenga Daniel, APC, Ogun East, four; Senator Dankwambo, three; Aminu Tambuwal, one; Sani Bello, three; Danjuma Goje, two; Wammako, two; and Adamu Aliero, one.

The lesson of this current set of people ruling the country since 2015 is what anyone with wisdom should apply to correct oneself.

PROPAGANDA, DECEIT & DESPERATION

one has to be very mindful of such things. This was and still is the hallmark of this present administration . The sad part of it all is that some of the people/followers tend to forget so so so easily some of their antics .

just spend time to study their pattern, you may understand what I am trying to explain.

Na bill we go chop??

Nigerians are currently facing unresolved economic woes caused by bad government and bad policies.

Had it being Bukola Saraki was the Senate president for Buhari 8 year of misrule our economy wouldn't have been in this mess .

Why can't the senators turn around and support people oriented policies rather than being a puppet to the executive arm.

What a shame.

They received almost 384 million naira each for 1 year for being redundant.

That is about 9.2 billion naira in total for the one year.

I swear, Nigeria is a joke.

And the redundant and useless senators cut across all the major political parties. LP, APC and PDP.

They're there collecting fat salaries and allowances for doing NOTHING. The workers who are giving their all to work for the betterment of the country are just neglected by this same government. So everyone should just find a way to look out for himself. Don't rely on this government because they don't care about us.

I didn't go through, I don't even need to go through.

One thing that has gone through my mind is; how would they sponsor any bill, all what they know is to collect jumbo sum of 1.2 m for newspaper allowance monthly when most of them can't read or write.
