The Senate has approved the report of its Committee on Culture and Tourism on the sale of the National Theatre and the Tafawa Balewa Square (TBS), Lagos. The approval followed the presentation of the report by Senator Fatimat Raji-Rasaki during plenary on Thursday at the upper chamber of the National Assembly in Abuja.
The Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, thanked Senator Raji-Rasaki for the bill, saying historic monuments must not be left to decay but be maintained adequately.
Similarly, the National Commission for Colleges of Education Act (Repeal and Re-enactment) Bill, 2019, has been read the third time and passed. Senator Ekweremadu commended the Senate for the conclusion of the bill, saying it would provide avenues for young people in the education sector.
