Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, on spoke against the scrapping of the Senate as being clamoured by some Nigerians, saying that could led to anarchy.
Rather than scrap the Senate, Lawan said Nigerians should vote out those in the current Senate whose faces they did not like come 2023.
According to him, the Senate is a leveler which ensured that all parts of the country are equally represented unlike the House of Representatives where states with higher populations produce the highest number of lawmakers.
Lawan spoke on Friday while declaring open, a retreat for top management staff of the National Assembly and National Assembly Service Commission in Abuja.
Speaking on the perceived jumbo pay earned by the senators, Lawan stated that the annual budget of the National Assembly is less than one per cent of the nation’s 2021 budget.
