The President of the Senate, Senator Godswill Akpabio on Wednesday in plenary presented the 10th Senate Magazine, a quarterly publication of the Senate, with a mandate to bridge the gap in information between the government and its citizens.

Senator Akpabio said the magazine will enable Senators to tell their stories, air their views and also report on the activities of the Senate and the services of the lawmakers to the nation.

Chairman Senate Committee on Media and Public Affairs and Editor-in-Chief of the Magazine, Senator Adeyemi Adaramodu while introducing the magazine said it would mark the birth of a new era of communication between the Senate and the citizens.

According to Senator Adaramodu, “If you don’t tell your story, your story will be told by somebody else and the story can be skewed and we know that the National Assembly, nay the Senate, is already being driven to a frozen metaphor for ludicrous tales whereby the narratives out there negates what the Senate stands for.

“For the first time in the annals of our great nation, we have the 10th Senate Magazine as a platform to bridge the gap between the Senate and the people, and is deliberately intended to foster transparency, understanding and engagement.

“The 10th Senate Magazine is the beginning of progress and the embodiment of the commitment of the Senate to open dialogue and effective communication with the Nigerian people at home and in the diaspora. In its pages, you will find a tapestry of stories, insights that reflects the rich chronicle of our nation,” he said.

Senator Seriake Dickson commended the presentation of the magazine and described it as uncommon. He said Senators will feature in subsequent editions of the magazine and urged members of the public to avail themselves and be enlightened about developments in the Senate.

On the invitation of the Senate President, Senator Adaramodu laid the magazine before the Senate.
