It is well o! In a move that one may not be wrong to describe as a “deliberate attempt to bribe Senator Oluremi Tinubu,” Senate President Bukola Saraki on Thursday, 21 July 2016, announced a reshuffling of committees in the Red Chambers.
Mrs. Tinubu, wife of the former Governor of Lagos state and one of APC’s bosses has been making headlines over her disagreement with fellow Senator Dino Melaye, representing Kogi West Senatorial District.
Sen. Tinubu who was chairperson of the Senate committee on Women Affairs has been announced as Chairperson for the Committee on Environment.
Others who benefited from the reshuffling exercise includes: Kabiru Marafa, (petroleum downstream committee), Adamu Aliero (Aviation), Baran Jibrin (Tertiary Institution), Binta Mazi Garba (Women Affairs), Joshua Dariye (Public procurement), Enyinya Abaribe (solid minerals), Sulieman Adokwe (information and national orientation)Sulieman Hukunyi (national identity).
Similarly, Legislative compliance; rules and business; and Federal character will now be chaired by Baba Jidari Omoworare, Baba Garba, and Tijani Kaura respectively. Ahmed Ogembe and Ovia Omo-Agegewere were named vice chairs of marine and lands respectively.
Shortly after the announcements, the Senate adjourned for a six-week break.
