The President of the Senate, Dr Bukola Saraki, on Monday said the 8th Senate passed 213 Bills and dispensed with 138 petitions from its inauguration in 2015 to June, 2018.
He made this known in a statement on Monday in Abuja and acknowledged that the achievements of the Senate during the period would not have been possible without the support of Nigerians.
In the statement signed by Mr Yusuf Olaniyonu, his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Saraki said “during this time, we have passed 213 Bills and cleared 138 petitions submitted by the public.
“We are happy to say that this Senate is the most productive since 1999.
“It has surpassed the 5th Senate which with 129 Bills in four years had the highest number of Bills as against the 6th Senate with 72 bills and 128 passed by the 7th Senate.
“The number of petitions we have successfully treated to the satisfaction of Nigerians who filed them dwarfed the eight and six treated by the sixth and seventh Senate, respectively.”
According to him, in the three short but eventful years, the Senate has definitely come a long way.
“We have worked assiduously and diligently to meet the demands of Nigerians and a changing economy that experienced a recession just a year after we assumed office.
