Nigerian Senate President, Mr. Ahmad Lawan has said that the 9th Senate will not hesitate to approve all requests that come to the Senate from the Mr President.
Lawan said any request that comes from Buhari is “good for the nation” and the Senate will take quick action on them.
Sagay on his visit, demand that the Senate President should ensure Ibrahim Magu, acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, is confirmed as the substantive head of the agency.
He said “The confirmation of acting chairman of EFCC – there is no request before this Senate for the confirmation of the acting chairman of EFCC.
“This is a new senate and therefore, until there is a request to this senate, there is nothing the senate can do.
“I want to assure you that any request that comes from Mr. President is a request that will make Nigeria a better place in terms of appointments or legislation and the senate will act expeditiously to ensure that we play our part in the confirmation or passing of legislation appropriately.”
He said the lawmakers are “in a haste” to pass anti-corruption bills.
“As far as we are concerned, those bills will have to come again and start to go through the process from the very beginning,” he said.
“We are ready; in fact, we are in haste if those bills are ready for us to start working on them.”
Earlier, Sagay, while making a case for Magu, said the acting EFCC chairman, has accomplished “magnificent work so far in the years of being in that position.”
“We also want to bring before the Senate, some of the criticisms of the public in the area of oversight,”
