President Muhammadu Buhari’s aide on Social Media matters, Lauretta Onochie, has applauded to the recent call made by Senator Rochas Okorocha’s call for the reduction of lawmakers in Nigeria.

KanyiDaily had reported that Senator Rochas Okorocha, a lawmaker representing Imo West in the National Assembly, called for the reduction in the number of senators representing various states, and the scrapping of House of Representatives in Nigeria.

Okorocha stressed that if his proposition was implemented, it would help to reduce the cost of governance in the country, stating that it would further help the country maintain fiscal discipline.

“Mr. President of the Senate, distinguished colleagues, let’s tell ourselves the truth. Look at the number of House of Representatives members and Senators.

“To me, what is too important that a House member is doing that a Senator from the same state is not doing?

“It is time for us to sacrifice and I want to say that a Senator is enough to represent a State in order to cut cost. We must do sacrifice for the nation,” Okorocha had said.

In reaction, Lauretta Onochie took to her Twitter page and commended Okorocha for his suggestion, saying he spoke the mind of Nigerians. She wrote:

 “I never thought that we would hear this on the floor of our National Assembly. In Nigeria. Wow!

“I must applaud Sen. Okorocha for his bravery. I hope he spoke the mind of the majority of our Assembly men and women because he spoke the mind of most Nigerians. God bless Nigeria.”
