The Nigerian Senate on Wednesday directed its Committee on Ethics and Privileges to probe comments allegedly made by Professor Itse Sagay, the chairman Presidential Advisory Committee on Corruption over the integrity of its members.
Deputy Senate leader, Bala Ibn’Allah had on a point of order raised at plenary on notified the lawmakers of a report in a newspaper where the Professor was quoted as saying that the Senate is filled with people of questionable character.
But Senator Ibn’Nallah said Senators are not people of questionable character.
He, therefore, asked the Senate to summon Professor Sagay to identify members with questionable characters he referred to in the interview.
The Senate consequently referred the matter to its Committee on Ethics and Privileges for investigation.
