Tinubu believes in rule of law – Senate president

Senate President, Godswill Akpabio says President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s two-month-old government believes in the rule of law.

He made the remark on Wednesday on the floor of the red chamber during the screening of ministerial nominee, Lateef Fagbemi.

Senator Eyinnaya Abaribe had asked Fagbemi; “What will your option be if the government you serve desecrates the constitution and does not obey court orders?”

Akpabio quickly interjected and faulted Abaribe for asking such a question, stressing that Tinubu’s government vowed to uphold the law.

He said: “I have a problem with the question; are you saying a government that has given so much to the rule of law would desecrate the Constitution? A government that swears to uphold the Constitution?

“This is preemptive; this government is not even up to two months old; you should be talking about the previous government, not this one. This government is a corrective regime. This government of Bola Tinubu is out to correct Nigeria and believes in the rule of law.”
