Senate President, Bukola Saraki, yesterday, said the Senate would support any proposal from the Executive arm of government to increase the fund slated for the amnesty programme in the 2016 Appropriation Act.

Saraki, in a statement from his Media Office after the Change of Guards ceremony to mark the nation’s 56th Independence Anniversary, said any plan by the executive to calm the frayed nerves in the Niger Delta and increase oil production, so as to earn more money for the country to get out of the current economic recession will enjoy the support of the National Assembly.

He reiterated the position of the Senate in its 20 point-solution to the economic recession billed to be presented to President Muhammadu Buhari that government should engage in constructive dialogue with the militants, who are making oil production difficult.
