Senator Dino Melaye's on Tuesday moved a motion over a newspaper article allegedly blackmailing the Senate for pointing out the alleged fraud.
The Senate President, Bukola Saraki, has reiterated the upper chambers’ readiness to investigate, at all cost, the alleged N25 billion Treasury Single Account (TSA) fraud.
Senator Dino Melaye’s on Tuesday moved a motion over a newspaper article allegedly blackmailing the Senate for pointing out the alleged fraud.
Reacting to the motion, Saraki said no blackmailing will stop the senate from carrying out its duty.
“No amount of either blackmail or intimidation will stop us from doing the work we have to do.
“We have a responsibility here to ensure that there are no leakages in government funds and if there are, we will call the attention of the public and do whatever it takes to salvage the situation; it is our responsibility.
“The fact about the TSA will come out and everybody will have opportunity before the committee to state the fact, the facts will speak for themselves,’’ he said.
He noted that the Senate would soon inaugurate Standing Committees to enable it to begin its oversight function fully.
