“When It Comes, We Would Reject It As Before”- Senate On Water Resources Bill

The Water Resources Bill which has already scaled first reading in the House of Representatives has continued to generate controversy.

It is presumed that the Bill would be presented to the Senate on resumption from their current break on September 15.

However, the Senate on Tuesday vowed to turn down the Bill when it is presented.

According to Enyinnaya Abaribe, Senate Minority Leader “We have not seen it in the Senate. When it comes we will reject as before,” 

Senator Biodun Olujimi, said that the Senate would not support any Bill that may be injurious to Nigerians, she said:

“The truth is that I am not aware of that Bill at all. However, anything that will injure our people, some of us will never be part of it.

“We will speak up against it when the time comes because nobody would be allowed to injure our people.

“We will not allow any legislation to ruin the fragile peace that we have in this country.

“We will not allow our fragile peace to be destroyed as a result of any political, personal or ethno-religious reasons.

“We won’t allow it because we are one entity and we must fight for the people of Nigeria.

“The Bill which is currently being treated at the House of Representatives would require the concurrence of the Senate and when the time comes, we won’t let it just fly like that.”
