Saraki - The Man Loved and Hated In Equal Measure Leaves Senate

"In all, Saraki led the Senate to pass important bills including the Electoral Amendment Bill, Petroleum Industry Governance Bill, Not-Too-Young-To-Run Bill, and the Police Reform Bill, and also made important interventions in policy and governance. But he will be leaving on a disappointing note, amidst unfulfilled promises, late budget passage and clear failure of the Senate to limit its cost. The Senate also failed to initiate badly needed policy framework and legislations to help an ineffective executive arm confront insecurity, unemployment, healthcare and education crises", writes Kemi Busari for the Premium Times.

"The 8th Senate pursued its legislative agenda to reform the economy and build a country that creates opportunity for all. It is an honour to preside over this Senate" - Senate President Abubakar Bukola Saraki.
