Senate President Bukola Saraki
It has been revealed that Senate President Bukola Saraki plans to remove from office, some ministers and other presidential assistants who fail to measure up in the government’s efforts to exit the country from economic recession.
According to AITNews, Mr. Saraki also said that the Senate would invite on resumption next week all those engaged in the management of the economy to tell Nigerians what steps they were taking to save the country’s economy from recession.
Saraki made this known while speaking during an interactive Town Hall meeting tagged ‘#AskSaraki’, which was organized as part of the activities to mark the Eid-el-Kabir celebrations.
Saraki said: “Those of us that you have elected into office are aware of the difficult economic situation in our country. We know we have to find a solution as fast as possible. We have no option. Once the Senate resumes, we will invite all those involved in the management of the economy to explain to the people what they are doing to solve the problem. Whoever among them does not measure up to expectation in his or her explanation we will recommend that he should be removed. This is time for co-operation and exchange of ideas.
“As things stand, I understand your concerns and feel your pains about the economy. I assure you that we will work together to bring about legislative and policy solutions to address the lingering economic situation.”
