The 8th Senate has already passed 128 bills in 26 months. ‘’This is weighed against the 5th Senate that passed 129 bills in four years; the 6th Senate that passed 72 bills in four years and the 7th Senate that passed 128 bills in four years. “When it comes to public petitions, in just 26 months, again, we have cleared 82 petitions.

PETROLEUM INDUSTRY GOVERNANCE BILL

This Senate broke the 18 year Petroleum Industry Governance Bill’s jinx in two years.

CONSTITUTION REVIEW

The 8th Senate finished the constitution review process a full two years before the next election cycle;

7 ECONOMIC BILLS

we have also passed seven economic priority bills that will create more opportunities for private sector participation in our economy, and put millions of Nigerians back to work. “

MADE IN NIGERIA AMENDMENT

Additionally, let’s not forget the ‘Made in Nigeria’ amendment that we passed with our review of the Public Procurement Act. This amendment will create a myriad of opportunities for Nigerian-owned businesses, by ensuring that they get first-option priority in the government’s procurement process.

4 ANTI CORRUPTION BILLS
