The President of the Senate, Godswill Akpabio, has said President Bola Tinubu’s government believes in the rule of law.
Akpabio made the remark during the ministerial screening of Lateef Fagbemi on the floor of the Senate on Wednesday.
During his screening, 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?”
Responding, Akapbio faulted Abaribe for asking such a question, stressing that Tinubu’s government vowed to uphold the law.
According to Akapbio: “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.”
