President of the Senate, Senator Abubakar Bukola Saraki, on Tuesday said the 8th Senate will work to prevent revenue leakages in the country.
Saraki, who spoke while receiving members of the Civil Society Groups that visited him in Abuja, said the Senate under his leadership would not only be people-centered but ensure the interest and welfare of Nigerians.
He said: “As duly elected representatives of the people, we will work closely with every stakeholder in our onerous task of building a prosperous, secured and egalitarian society where the dividend of democracy will be felt by the people.”
The Senate President said the upper legislative chamber is ready to work harmoniously with the groups, adding that their engagement will fast-track the developmental goals of this administration.
He urged the groups to be more proactive and constructive in their approach to issues, saying, “I recognize the importance of the CSOs in nascent democracy. You have done creditably well so far.
“On our part as legislators, we will be open, transparent and accept to work together as a team in order to transform our abundant resources to the betterment of Nigeria and Nigerians.”
Saraki assured that the Senate under his leadership will be steadfast and improve in its oversight functions.
