Senator Eyinnaya Abaribe representing Abia-South Senatorial District of Abia State, has called on the Senate Committee on Rules and Business to clear the air on the supposedly National Grazing Reserve Commission bill.
During the plenary session of the senate, Abaribe stated that he had met with the clerk of the Senate, who confirmed that contrary to media reports, that such bill wasn’t before the senate.
Speaking further, the Senator noted that he had received several calls from his constituents on the issue.
“I have gotten more than 1,000 calls and this has to do with something called the Grazing Reserve Commission Bill. When I asked where is the information coming from, they said the information is coming from the social media.”
“Mr President the last time a Grazing Reserve Commission Bill came to this Senate was in the 7th Senate and was proposed by Sen. (Zainab) Kure who is no longer in the Senate.”
“So the reason why I am making this personal explanation is so that my constituents in Abia South will know that there is no such bill called Grazing Reserve Commission Bill before this Senate.”
“I have taken time to ask the clerk and every other person to say where is this bill that has passed second reading and they said they also are in confusion, they have never seen such thing.”
