Trace Reporters –Senators have threatened to shoot down a proposed Water Resources Bill when it is presented to the Upper Chamber.
The Bill, which has scaled first reading in the House of Representatives, has continued to generate controversy.
There are indications that the Bill will likely be presented to the Senate when its resumes, on September 15, from its current break.
Senate Minority Leader Enyinnaya Abaribe told reporters in Abuja that even though the Bill is yet to surface on the floor of the Senate, it would not be allowed to see the light of day when it is eventually presented.
“We have not seen it in the Senate. When it comes, we will reject as before,” Abaribe said in a terse text message in reply to an enquiry on the Bill by a reporter in Abuja.
Senator Biodun Olujimi said senators would not support any Bill that may be injurious to Nigerians.
Olujimi told reporters in Abuja that her colleagues would stand up against any legislation that can disrupt the nation’s fragile peace.
