Omoyele Sowore, convener of RevoluntionNow, has called for the scrapping of the Nigerian senate.

 

Sowore said the Senate has become a coven and retirement home for liars and corrupt former governors.

 

He was reacting to claims that Senators got N500 million each from the 2024 budget.

The Senator representing Cross River North, Agom Jarigbe, made the revelation on the floor of the Senate on Tuesday, during a session on the alleged padding of the 2024 budget.

Bauchi Central Senator, Abdul Ningi had earlier alleged that N3.7 trillion was padded into the 2024 budget.

Posting on X, Sowore wrote: “It’s time we seriously move to abolish the bi-cameral legislative system, especially the @NGRSenate, which has always been a coven of thieves; it is the retirement home of chronic liars, never-do-wells, and corrupt former governors in Nigeria. We need a unicameral legislative arm with no more than 100 part-time lawmakers. #RevolutionNow.”
