The leadership of the Senate yesterday said that the house will no longer tolerate appointees by President Muhammadu Buhari who have ulterior motives in bringing disrepute to the Senate.
The President of the Senate, Ahmed Lawan made this known on Monday after President Buhari inaugurated members of the consultative committee in Abuja.
Lawan who expressed confidence on the calibre of men in the committee explained that the task of the consultative committee was to ensure that both arms of government speak with one voice.
However, he promised that the expected synergy will not erode the function of checks and balances, a principle the legislature is committed to.
