Senate stirs storm with another probe of BPE

"We should approach the exercise with an open mind, no witch hunting, there should be no victimization; there should be no playing to the gallery," Senate President David Mark said penultimate Tuesday as he empanelled a fresh team of seven Senators to conduct a comprehensive probe of the privatization process undertaken by the Bureau for Public Enterprises, BPE.

The probe would be the second comprehensive probe of the BPE's sale of public assets in under ten years by the Senate having conducted a similar probe in 2004.

The Senate probe followed a motion moved by Senator Ahmad Lawan, (ANPP, Yobe North) drawing attention to what he claimed as the collapse of most of the privatized companies and the failure of the privatization process.
