Former Imo state Governor Rochas Okorocha, has advised the country to reduce the number of senators per state to 1 instead of 3.
He said that the senate needed to make sacrifices so that more funds could be used for development of the nation.
“We must begin to make sacrifice and cut down our cost of governance by having just one (1) Senatorial representative instead of three (3) per state. We should fund the productive sector of our economy.
Here, we have three senators per state. In that National Assembly (House of Representatives) over there, we have 360 eligible human beings. This country must begin to make sacrifices and cut down the cost of governance.
I do not know what we are doing differently today in the 9th Senate from what we did in the 8th Senate and what we did in the 7th Senate, 6th Senate and so forth and so on.
And if what we are doing today is similar to what we did in the 8th Senate be rest assured the product will be the same.”
