As the 9th senate begins legislative business today, a Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) senator representing Enugu East, Senator Chimaroke Nnamani has declared that he shall be a full time  professional lawmaker. Senator Nnamani who stated this at a media briefing in Abuja yesterday added that he would be resuming to National Assembly virtually before his colleagues just as he closes later than them.

The former governor of Enugu state who has been in the Senate before said that his focus in the Senate will be on debate on the Nigerian project ostensibly to making it work better for the generality of Nigerians He however expressed confidence that the 9th Senate under the Presidency of Senator Ahmad Lawan , would serve as veritable platform of driving the debate . According to him, rather than the basic bread and butter politics, educated advocacy on how to make the Nigerian project work better will be made to be the central focus of the 9th National Assembly . He said, ” My coming to the Senate on a second missionary journey is driven by a greater sense of the need for the ‘sleeping giant’ called Nigeria, to wake up from her slumber . “It is a project that must be made to work for the generality of Nigerians through robust debate and advocacy in that direction.

“Nigeria as a country , has come of age regardless of her chequered history and in doing this,  basic principles of Nationhood predicated on  equity, fairness , unity,  justice and  rule of law ; must prevail at all times between the government and the governed at all levels and among her peoples.
