We won’t go against Senate decision on national assets sale – Presidency


The Presidency on Friday regarded as untrue, speculations that it is about selling national assets, despite the Senate’s decision against it.

The Senior Special Assistant to the President on National Assembly Matters, Senator Ita Enang, said this while addressing journalists on Friday.

The Senate on Tuesday had voted against selling national assets to boost the ailing economy, even though Senate President Bukola Saraki had opined that the assets should be sold.

Enang said, “I am not aware of the details (of) where the government proposed to sell national assets and I rely on the words given by Senator Udo Udoma (Minister of Budget and National Planning) that there is no proposal (to sell the assets). I also rely on the words given by the Minister of Information (Lai Mohammed) that these are all in the realm of speculations.

“We take the Senate and the National Assembly very seriously. We don’t talk back at the institution and what the legislators say is communicated and we respect the Senate because Nigerians should also know that the lawmakers are the people who will approve what we will do.”
