Grips on  Senator Grace Bent Career

Grace Folashade Bent was elected chair of the Nigerian Senate Committee on Environment after her election in 2007. In this capacity, she was embroiled in a controversy over President Umaru Yar’Adua’s decision to extend permission for gas flaring to oil companies without consulting the Senate. Senator Bent opposed the creation of a Desert Control Commission in March 2009, claiming that it would subsume or duplicate the functions of the national committee on environmental issues. Mahmud Kanti Bello, the Senate whip, warned her against dragging the public hearing on the proposed commission into “undue arguments.”

Senator Bent sponsored a motion in April 2009, following a visit to South Africa, to issue a travel warning to all Nigerians travelling to South Africa, warning them to be wary of incessant attacks.

Grace Folashade Bent wrote a formal letter to Senator Mohammed Adamu Aliero, Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), in September 2009, protesting the excessive felling of trees for road construction.

Bent ran for Adamawa South Senator in the PDP primaries in April 2011, but was defeated by Ahmed Hassan Barata. To her 406 votes, he received 738 votes. Bent later claimed that she had won a rerun primary, despite the fact that she was said to be favoured by the PDP party leadership. A judge ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to remove Barata’s name from the list of candidates and replace it with Bent while the question was being considered. The INEC, the Federal High Court in Abuja, and the PDP’s counsel all rejected Bent’s claim. She is fluent in Yoruba, including the Ijesa dialect.

A.T Shehu, to apologise for calling her a non-indigene of the state, describing his actions as an example of “crass ignorance” of the law. She was perplexed as to why a trained lawyer, such as the Adamawa PDP chairman, would resort to what she described as “outright violence.”

For the purpose of tarnishing her reputation and turning the good people of Adamawa against her, she tells “lies.”
