Senator Shehu Sanni, a former member of the 8th Assembly has slammed the National Assembly for regularly approving the loan requests submitted by President Muhammadu Buhari without reviewing it.
The Senator disclosed this at the Delta State Civil Society Day and Award 2021 in Asaba.
Shehu noted that, “During our stay in the National Assembly, requests for loans were thoroughly scrutinised and debated seriously. In the committee where I had the likes of Dino, Ben Bruce, we threw away the loan [requests] that did not represent the general well being of Nigerians.”
He added that, “Many were in the House for years without impact but people like us spent four years and made an impact. We did not go there to learn, we are already professionals.”
