Senate after two months resumed sitting yesterday with emphasis resolution for the current economic recession bedevilling the country.
Chairman, Senate Committee on Rules and Business, Senator Baba Kaka Garbai, who made this known, said every other thing would be stepped down to give room for the matter to be trashed out completely in session and closed door.
Amongst the steps to be taken include inviting economic experts to proffer solutions to the senators in session, after listening to the Senate president lead debate on the matter.
He said they took the decision after seeing that people were actually going through a lot of hardship because of the various problems the citizens were undergoing as a result of the economic recession in the country.
Speaking further, he said “the discussions, particularly within the next two months in the Senate, will be dominated by issues relating to economy, especially how to rescue the economy out of the recession we are currently facing. Thus will dominate this legislative session.
“Tomorrow, we will actually have discussions bothering on recession. Some will be open to everybody in the plenary, and we will also have a close door session, where we will hold discussions with some resource persons in relation to the recession.
“We have several items in our order paper for tomorrow (today) but the discussion on the recession will dominate our tomorrow’s session. And most part of the entire legislative session will be geared towards deliberations on how to bail out the economy from the current recession.
“We are also going to have bills that will go through first reading from the proposed order paper. We have first reading of House bills which have been sent to the Senate for concurrence. There are actually five House bills that will go through first reading tomorrow (today) for concurrence.
“In addition to that, there are some reports to be presented to the plenary for consideration. But I don’t want to go into details on the issues to be discussed on recession.
“As far as I am concerned, the issue of the President requesting for emergency powers is speculative because we have not received any communication to that effect; I just read it the way you read it in the newspapers. So, I cannot go into it because officially, we don’t know anything about it,” he averred.
