Senator Babajide Omoworare representing Osun East Senatorial District, yesterday lamented that quarrelling stalled the progress that would have been achieved in the 8th National Assembly and charged his colleagues in the Senate to shun personal aggrandisement in the interest of the electorate who voted them to power.
Omoworare said this during an interaction with members of the Osun NUJ Correspondents’ Chapel in Osogbo, capital of Osun State.
According to Omoworare, the crisis in the National Assembly was a collective error on the part of major stakeholders among the concerned politicians and that this constituted some hindrances to national development.
While speaking on the withdrawal of charges against the Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki and his Deputy, Ike Ekweremadu by the Federal Government, Omoworare said such sacrifice may be necessary to pave way for progress and development of the country.
His words, “I’m not happy with what is happening in the 8th Senate which has stalled the progress that we would have made. We would have made appreciable progress if there was one voice in the Senate. And there is no way the executive arm could succeed when the Senate is in trouble.”
Omoworare who was removed from the position of Chairman of Senate Committee on Rules and Business in the Senate said he had no grudge against the Senate President and that he was never part of any plot to remove Saraki.
“I have my views and opinions on issues going on in the Senate but I never partook in any move to impeach the President of the Senate even when I was removed as the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Rules and Business where I was serving diligently”, he added.
