He said since the three arms of government are independent, the lawmakers are of the opinion that the executive alone cannot be enjoying immunity, while the two others are deprived of such.
“On the issue of immunity, what they discussed at the retreat is that the senators said it is either you give immunity to all three arms of government or immunity to none. That is, there are three arms of government; the executive, legislative and the judiciary”.
“One cannot be enjoying immunity, while the others can’t benefit from same. The immunity is not for the Senate president alone, it will also be given to the Chief Justice of Nigeria who is the head of the judiciary arm of government”.
“So, the senators said it is either you give all the heads of the three arms or you remove it from the executive arm so that nobody will have it”he said.
