The Nigerian Senate has rejected the proposed sale of national asset by the federal government. The Senate took the decision on Tuesday at the resumed plenary after an extensive deliberation. The Buhari administration has proposed the sell some asset to revive the economy. But many Nigerians are opposed to the plan, arguing that previous sales barely helped the nation’s economy. The government has suggested that if it eventually adopts the policy, it would insist on a re-purchase clause. Majority of the senate present voted against the move of the Buhari’s administration whilst few mostly members of the ruling All Progressives Congress from North West voted in support.
