Senator Abubakar speaks on influx of ex-governors to National Assembly

All Progressives Congress (APC) Senator from Taraba State, Senator Yusuf Abubakar has expressed concern over the influx of former governors into the Nigerian Senate.

The federal lawmaker said that the former governors may form an association in the red chambers.

There are over 20 former governors in the Nigerian Senate at the moment.

The lawmaker, who is representing Taraba Central Senatorial District in the upper chamber of the National Assembly, expressed his concerns in an interview with the Leadership Newspaper.

He, however, said there is nothing wrong in tapping from the experience of the former governors after their reign in the states.

His words: “In the 8th session, we had 21 governors, though some have gone, more have come to the Senate.

“The reality is that people go into governorship elections at a very tender age, so by the time they finished their two terms, they are still strong and active.

“It is also natural that they share their wealth of experience with others. Nigeria needs to tap from their experience and if the law permits them, then there is no problem.

“The only fear is that, they might want to form an association within the chamber that will insist things must go their way.”
