PDP Senators Protest as Saraki fails to sack Uba

The Peoples Democratic Party caucus will soon protest against the continued chairmanship of the
Public Accounts Committee by Senator Andy Uba, SUNDAY PUNCH has reliably learnt.
 The minority lawmakers are planning to take their protests to President of the Senate, Senator Bukola Saraki, who has not removed Uba since his defection on February 21, 2017.
 The PDP caucus will be demanding that Uba be sacked and a member of the opposition be appointed as his replacement by Saraki.
The committee, which exists in the Senate and House of Representatives, is the only committee in the National Assembly recognised by the Constitution and is traditionally headed by a member of the opposition.
The duties of the committee include to monitor transparency and accountability in the management and expenditure of public funds by ministries, department and agencies.
