The Senate has urged Nigerians to judge by its achievements and facts, and not by sentiments and propaganda.



Chairman, Senate of the Committee on Media and Public Affairs, Senator Aliyu Sabi Abdullahi, in a statement on Sunday, said the 8th Senate “remains the highest performing Senate in the history of the country.”

This, he said, was based on the “unprecedented performance” of the upper chamber of the 8th National Assembly “despite the distractions” since it was inaugurated on the June 9, 2015,

Abdullahi said, “The facts speak for themselves. This 8th Senate has already passed 128 bills in 26 months. This is weighed against the 5th Senate that passed 129 bills in four years; the 6th Senate that passed 72 bills in four years; and the 7th Senate that passed 128 bills in four years.

“When it comes to public petitions, in just 26 months, again, we have cleared 82 petitions. This is juxtaposed against the 6th and 7th Senate that cleared only six petitions in four years.”

The Senate’s spokesman also listed “some of the noteworthy achievements of the 8th Senate” as including passage of “several historic bills” like the Petroleum Industry Governance Bill.

He said, “This is the same Senate that broke the Petroleum Industry Bill’s jinx in two years. This is also the same chamber that passed a comprehensive Electoral Reform Bill within 18 months of its inauguration.

“I can keep on listing out our achievements. We also finished the Constitution review process a full two years before the next election cycle; we have also passed seven economic priority bills that will create more opportunities for private sector participation in our economy, and put millions of Nigerians back to work.

“Additionally, let’s not forget the ‘Made in Nigeria’ amendment that we passed with our review of the Public Procurement Act. This amendment will create a myriad of opportunities for Nigerian-owned businesses, by ensuring that they get first-option priority in the government’s procurement process.

“Moving forward, although we have already passed four anti-corruption bills to strengthen our nation’s capacity to fight graft, we are still committed to passing as many laws as we need to cut and curb corruption in Nigeria.

“In this regard, when we hear people judge us by the propaganda of adverse elements in our polity, we would like to ask them to do their research and follow our work themselves, so that they can judge us by facts, not sentiments.”
