Sen. Dino Melaye warns: Stop Partiality, Decide on Magu
The Chairman Senate Committee on Federal Capital Territory, Sen. Dino Melaye has called on the Senate to avoid partiality in the application of law in the senate. Melaye said this during the celebration of the two years of the current senate, while also calling President Muhammadu Buhari to take a decisive action on the rejection of the Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Commission (EFCC), Magu by the senate.
Melaye said, “With all our successes, it is time for the senate to be bolder than ever, to speak with more confidence, to speak in the interest of Nigerians. “We must hold on that which is true. The persecution in the first half should not be entertained in the second half. Please tighten your sit belts and tell the truth and we must identify that there is a uniform law and we should not allow selective application of the law.”
He urged President Muhammadu Buhari to take a decisive action on Senate’s rejection of the Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Commission (EFCC), asking, “Why is Magu still in office? I am happy that the Chairman of APC is here. Two years ago we were on two separate divide. Some of us were in the chamber and some took excursion to International Conference Center (ICC), but today nobody is anywhere, as we are here as one indivisible senate.”
“I salute the intellectual mobility of the President of the Senate, a man of style that has brought direction to Senate. Were it not for the president, things would not have been this stable. Many may not appreciate what I am saying because they don’t like your face but that is the truth.”
