The Senate has reacted after the Nigerian workers forced their way into the National Assembly Complex on Wednesday to protest fuel subsidy removal by the federal government.
Legit News reports that the protesters in their hundreds had marched from the Unity Fountain in Abuja to the National Assembly Complex in protest against the “anti-poor” policies of the President Bola Tinubu administration.
Upon their arrival at the parliament complex, the protesters pulled down the first gate and marched on the premises.
Senate President, Godswill Akpabio, immediately entered into a closed-door session with lawmakers and upon his emergence from the meeting, said the Red Chamber had set up a three-man committee to meet with the protesters at the National Assembly arcade.
The committee was led by Senate Chief Whip, Senator Ali Ndume, representing Borno South Senatorial District. He was joined by Senator representing FCT, Heebah Ireti Kingibe, Anambra South Senator, Tony Nwoye, among others.
