•Senate President Bukola Saraki.

The South East/South South Network (SESSNet) has condemned the Nigerian Senate for voting against the resource control and devolution of power in the country.

The group in a statement issued after conclusion of the clause-by-clause voting on amendment of 1999 Constitution, wondered how the senators could kick against the proposals that would have solved the country’s current problem.

SESSNet said in the statement jointly signed by Chief Aloysius Osuji Esq. and Mr Kalada Apiafi: “In view of popular separatist tendencies, especially in the south, it is either Restructuring or Separation. One must be accepted.

“The Senate having rejected restructuring implicitly means that they have voted for separation.

“Today’s voted merely validated the general belief that politicians are out of touch with the populace and Senate’s decision today has simply added fire to the agitation for self determination by some regions in the country.”
