Senate President Bukola Saraki yesterday indicated plans to reshuffle the 68 Senate standing Committees.

Saraki disclosed the intention during yesterday during plenary session.

He was responding to observation by Deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu, who picked holes in the composition of the standing committees.

Ekweremadu had during consideration of report of the Senate Committee on Tertiary Institutions and TETFUND, on the Federal University of Maritime Studies, Oron, Bill said the membership of committees needed to be reviewed.

He raised observation after the chairman of the committee, Senator Barau Jibrin (APC, Kano) presented the report.

Holding a copy of the report, Ekweremadu said only 12 out of the 21 members of the tertiary institutions committee signed it.

“It is unusual the number of senators, 21 that are in the tertiary institutions committee. It is unhealthy that many senators will be in many committees that would make it difficult for them to attend meetings,” he said

Saraki concurred with the observation saying, “I agree with you in entirety. You will recall that at the leadership we have discussed it. We must clean it up and this must be done before we go for our recess,” he said.
