The Senator who represents Adawama South, in the 9th Assembly, Binos Yeroe, said he agreed with critics that labelled the 9th National Assembly as a rubber stamp parliament.
Speaking at the 9th Senate valedictory session on Saturday, Yeroe said those criticising the 9th Assembly as a rubber stamp of the executive were right.
He said the manner in which the N22.7 trillion CBN Ways and Means Advances to the Federation was approved by the National Assembly justified the rubber stamp label.
He said, “the suspension of the governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Godwin Emefiele and subjecting him to investigation is a mild indictment of the National Assembly. This is so because if we had done our oversight duties properly, we would not have gotten to this level.
“I hope the 10th Senate will take its job as the watchdog of the executive more seriously.”
