The eloquent senator representing Imo west constituency, equally faulted the number of persons in the house of representatives.

Here are his words, “What (are) three senators doing that one senator cannot do?” Okorocha asked.

“Here, we have three senators per state. Over there,(house of representatives) over there, we have 360 eligible human beings. This country must begin to make sacrifices and cut down the cost of governance.”
