Senate Debunks NLC’s Accusation of N100m Member Allocation
Recently, the Senate firmly dismissed the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) accusation, which alleged an allocation of N100 million to Senate members. Described by the Senate as both “ludicrous and baseless,” the allegations are being seen as a potential attempt to discredit the legislative body.
Yemi Adaramodu, the Senate Committee on Media and Publicity’s chairman, conveyed the Senate’s stance, emphasizing the absence of such a provision for any lawmaker. He voiced the Senate’s apprehension over the intentions behind these claims, questioning their authenticity.
The Senate warns against the dissemination of such groundless rumors and highlighted its readiness to employ constitutional avenues against those responsible. Additionally, the Senate appealed to the NLC to prioritize the nation’s interest and steer clear from potentially harming democratic processes.
As this narrative between the Senate and NLC unfolds, the importance of public discernment and commitment to genuine information becomes paramount.
