Saraki responds to letter by Obasanjo

Senate President Bukola Saraki, has responded to a letter from former President Olusegun Obasanjo, to him and Speaker of the House of Representative Yakubu Dogara in which the former president condemned the leadership of the National Assembly for planning to buy more cars. Saraki in his reply which was released today January 28th, said members of the 8th Senate are committed to good governance, transparency and accountability and will be responsive to the current economic realities of the country. Read full text of his response after the cut...

Yesterday, I acknowledged that I received a letter from former President Olusegun Obasanjo in which he called the attention of the National Assembly to some issues.
I will want to assure President Obasanjo that the leadership and membership of the 8th Senate are committed to good governance, transparency, accountability, due process and responsiveness to the economic reality of our nation. It is for this reason that the legislative chamber has introduced bold and progressive reforms in the management of the finances of the National Assembly.
This is of even greater importance during a tough fiscal period for our country. Like i said during my closing address at the plenary after our debate on the 2016 Budget, the Senate must lead by example in terms of our own funding, budgets and accountability – showing, beyond doubt, value for money. I have canvassed that we must lay bare the budget of the Senate, nay the National Assembly and its affiliated institutions.
I equally canvassed the need to strengthen the capacity of the legislative institution to carry our effective oversight of the executive arm so that we can ensure the budget leads to the realization of the policy objectives of the Buhari Administration. Again, let me reiterate my position in the speech I made this morning on the need for us to work towards blocking all areas of revenue leakages while also strengthening the anti-corruption agencies so that the little resources that are now available will serve the interest of the overwhelming majority.
As a former President and a father of the nation that we all hold in high esteem , I intend to reply the letter and outline the actions the Senate is taking to address his concerns.
In conclusion, I appreciate President Obasanjo for his consistent role in always reminding those of us in government about our responsibilities to the general public and offering timely advise where necessary.

Signed
Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki

Dr Saraki when it comes to OBJ, tread with great caution for he can be a spoiler when you least expect it so act wisely before his sidelight focuses on you

I have a confession, I just realised that I have a soft spot for Bukola Saraki, there's just something about him... I initially hated him after he sneaked his way to become senate president. But I've since forgiven him and now realised that he's a smart, intellegent, eloquent, 'man of the people' who knows how to use what he has to get what he wants. It is really a gift and I admire that a lot about him. Kudos Mr Senate President.

Very mature reply, Saraki for president 2019.

Better. The kind of sense GEJ, Common sense senator and DINOsaur do not have.

Simple Unassuming Personality said...

As Majority Leader in the NPN-controlled Senate during the 2nd republic, his father played the role of a very mature politician; although, Bukola may not know this given his youthful age at the time. And as Africans and particularly Nigerians, it is the prayer of every parent that the children surpass their laudable milestones and to which, I now commend Bukola Saraki, the Senate President. Look at the MATURITY in the address to his colleagues and look at the comments on how he intends to respond to Obasanjo. He is wiser.....and keep it up for the sake of the unity of this country. Lastline: We want you for CEGON...please look into it!
