We have no expenses to cut down – Senate says

The Senate has said it has no expenses to cut down despite the economic hardship occasioned by the removal of fuel subsidies.  

The Chairman of the Senate Committee on Media and Public Affairs, Senator Yemi Adaramodu, told journalists in Ilorin, Kwara State, on Monday August 4, that the National Assembly is not responsible for any economic hardship experienced in Nigeria. 

He identified what he described as many cogent roles, including committee works and oversight roles, played by lawmakers without any allowances attached, insisting that calls for them to cut down on expenses cannot be valid. 

Adaramodu made the remarks moments after the tribunal ruled in his favour, upholding the All Progressives Congress (APC) stalwarts electoral victory against Senator Biodun Olujimi of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
