The Chairman Senate Committee on Rules and Business, Senator Ita Enang, has responded to allegations made by Senator Remi Tinubu that the Senate was divided and the PDP majority in the Senate actively tries to sink the bills initiated by APC lawmakers.
Senator Enang, in an interview, said that it was uncharitable for any Senator to allege partisanship on the floor of the Senate.
He said that the leadership of the Senate allows lawmakers from both the majority and minority parties to contribute to debates on motions and bills on the floor of the Senate.
Senator Enang also stressed that PDP lawmakers were aware that bills and laws are not made for the party but for the nation.
The former Lagos State First Lady had said that she was not entirely interested in extending her term at the National Assembly. She accused the PDP Senators of frustrating genuine bills their counterparts from APC sponsored in the House.
Tinubu revealed how the PDP “cabal” at the Senate allegedly scuttled her bill on social security. She made the allegations in Lagos while addressing journalists on her achievement since she was voted in as a Senator representing Lagos Central Senatorial district.
Tinubu, in her speech titled, “Making A Mark: Three Years Of People-Focused Representation”, gave an account of her stewardship in the Senate since her election three years ago.
