Senator Okechukwu Ezea, a prominent Labour Party lawmaker representing Enugu North in the Senate, has challenged a report by Vanguard that listed him among 24 senators without a bill one year into the 10th National Assembly.


The report’s headline stated, “24 senators have no bill in one year,” referring to the period between June 13, 2023, and March 31, 2024.

However, Senator Ezea argued that this timeframe does not constitute a full year and noted that he sponsored a bill on April 30, 2024.

Additionally, he emphasized his active participation through raising several motions and contributing to debates.

In a statement by his Special Adviser (Media), Mr. Aniebo Nwamu, Senator Ezea clarified: “On April 30, 2024, Distinguished Senator Ezea’s bill was listed No. 5 on the Senate Order Paper for the day. The bill, entitled ‘The Agricultural Research Council Act (Amendment) Bill, 2024,’ passed its first reading on the floor of the Nigerian Senate.”

The bill aims to amend the Agricultural Research Council Act to include the creation of the Federal College of Agriculture in Adani, Uzo-Uwani Local Government Area, Enugu State, and is progressing towards passage into law.

Furthermore, Mr. Nwamu highlighted that video evidence of Senator Ezea raising motions and engaging in debates is widely available online, countering claims of his inactivity.
