Daniel Bwala, the spokesperson of the Atiku Abubakar presidential campaign during the 2023 presidential election, has responded to a viral video featuring a senator berating the Senate President, Godswill Akpabio, over the hasty passage of bills without careful consideration.
The senator’s concerns have ignited a debate about the legislative process.
In the viral video, the senator expressed his grievances, accusing Akpabio of not allowing fellow senators to contribute to the discussion before bills are passed.
He highlighted the alarming pace at which certain bills, particularly those related to financial matters, are expedited, sometimes within a mere two hours.
The senator voiced his apprehension about the implications of such hasty decision-making for the nation.
Despite the criticisms, Senate President Akpabio stood his ground, asserting that Nigerians and history would remember him for the good that these speedy bill passages intend to achieve.
He defended the approach, emphasizing that it is in the best interest of the country.
Atiku Campaign’s Concern:
Sharing the viral video on his X account, Daniel Bwala expressed his lament over the state of affairs in the 10th Senate.
He highlighted the gravity of the situation, suggesting that one day, Nigerians might wake up to discover that a bill has been passed that could impact their destinies significantly.
Bwala stressed the need for vigilance and the protection of the nation’s interests, as he fervently prayed against such a dire scenario.
The concerns raised by the senator in the viral video and the subsequent response from Akpabio have sparked a dialogue on the legislative process and the importance of careful consideration in bill passage.
As Nigeria’s political landscape continues to evolve, it remains crucial for citizens and stakeholders to actively engage in the democratic process and advocate for transparency and accountability in governance.
