Tinubu not looking for ‘rubber stamp’ NASS, says Senator-elect Oshiomhole
Senator-elect Adams Oshiomhole has said the President-elect, Bola Tinubu, is not looking for a rubber stamp National Assembly but a robust one.
Oshiomhole who is representing Edo North Senatorial District stated this while speaking with newsmen at the presentation of the certificate of return to Senators-elect in Abuja on Tuesday.
”Our president-elect looks forward to a senate that would contribute to the development of the country.
”I will not be part of the legislator for the powerful but to the countrymen,” he said.
Oshiomhole, a former National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, said he had been the voice of the people as a textile union activist, NLC President, and Governor of Edo, even in his choice of projects.
“I will be part of the senate that legislates for the good people of our countrymen, not for the powerful, by making sure that what we do in appropriation will be such that Nigerians get value for money.
“It is expected that the executive is powerful but does not have absolute power, so it will not be subject to legislative check.
