Senate Summons Service Chiefs to Appear on Wednesday



Confirmation has been made that the Senate has extended an invitation to the Service Chiefs to attend a session on Wednesday and Thursday. The purpose of their appearance is to address concerns regarding the prevailing insecurity in the country.

Senator Tokunbo Abiru announced today the postponement of the scheduled interaction with the Senate Committee on Banking, Insurance, and Other Financial Institutions while disclosing this information.

Abiru, who chairs the Committee, informed reporters that the planned meeting with the CBN Governor, Olayemi Cardoso, has been rescheduled for Friday, as Wednesday and Thursday have been allocated for discussions with the Service Chiefs.

Following the Senate’s resolution last week, the Service Chiefs were summoned to provide necessary explanations on the deteriorating security situation in the country during the plenary session. The Committee on Banking, in alignment with the resolution, summoned the CBN Governor to discuss the state of the nation’s economy and the free flow of the Naira on Tuesday.

In accordance with the resolution, committee members gathered at room 211 for the planned session with the CBN governor from 3 pm to 4:30 pm, before deciding to move it to Friday this week.

Senator Abiru, the Committee’s Chairman, remarked, “Following an almost two-hour wait for the CBN Governor for the planned interface, we have decided to reschedule it to 9 am on Friday this week.”

“The postponement of the committee’s interface with the CBN Governor is due to the fact that he and other economic leaders have been engaged with our counterparts in the House of Representatives since morning, without knowing the exact end time of their session.”

“While we considered rescheduling for Wednesday or Thursday, the Senate has designated these two days for significant and constructive engagement with the Service Chiefs.”

“Hence, we have ultimately decided on Friday this week for the interface with the CBN Governor at 9 am.”

“We will communicate this decision to the CBN Governor today (Tuesday) and possibly other government officials responsible for managing the economy.”
