“Leadership cannot just go along to get along. Leadership must meet the moral challenge of the day.” —Jesse Jackson
That, at a time when the Executive arm of the government is trying to minimize cost of governance, our Senators could buy one Land cruiser jeep per state at =N=36.5m each, shows that we have the wrong people at the Upper Chamber. Do they need a 36.5m keep to represent us? Don’t we know them? Do they need to impress us with Jeep?
That the Senate will leave its daily constitutional duty at the Senate to provide ‘Solidarity Support’ for the embattled and self-immolating Senate President before the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT), shows that these Senators are far from the reality of the times we are in, that it is no longer business as usual for corruption and all its allies.
That the Senate could attempt to arm twist and frustrate the CCT’s plan to ensure speedy trial and judgment on the Saraki’s matter, by unconstitutionally summoning the CCT Chairman on a matter which is already before a competent Court of Law, is tantamount to sabotage of the will of the people and treason against the very people they represent. We all know that this summon is to frustrate the daily trial session of 10am to 6pm and the stay off instruction to the shameless ‘Saraki’s Supporters Club’ within the Senate, as ordered by the CCT.
This 8th Senate must understand the moral challenge of the times we are in. She must understand that failure to meet up with the moral challenge will lead to her failure and eventual dissolution. Nigerians, home and in diaspora should rise up to speak up in unison against all attempts by this Senate to draw us back with their senseless and selfish spending, their attempt to toy with our budget, their ploy to protect one of their own in the face of overwhelming evidence of wanton and reckless corruption, and their grandstanding by inviting the CCT Chairman.
Say ‘NO’ to these immoral Senators.
God bless us all.
Good morning Africa!
Good morning Nigeria!
