Nigerians blast‘selfish’ Saraki for postponing NASS resumption
Nigerians have reacted angrily to the news that the National Assembly has postponed its resumption from 25 September to 9 October.
The National Assembly began its annual vacation on July 24 and has refused to reconvene despite calls to do so by the executive.
According to the clerk, Mohammed Omolori, the extension will allow lawmakers partake in primaries of their political parties.
But the latest action of the lawmakers have irked Nigerians who feel strongly that they have been taken for granted especially by the Senate President Bukola Saraki, who is ceasing the opportunity to pursue his presidential ambition.
Taking to Twitter, Nigerians expressed their reservations about the announcement.
White Willow described the postponement as an act of dictatorship. “Saraki’s leadership won’t be different from Samuel Doe and Idi Amin if ever allowed to rule this country. His kleptomaniac attitude is a threat to our country.
Omaroso Ali Ovie also waded in on the matter. “National Assembly will delay resumption day by additional two weeks, so as to give Saraki more time to continue his Presidential campaign,traveling around the country for consultation. Those closeted PDP activists will never see anything wrong with the excesses of this senate .” Iyabo Awokoya called for a reaction from Nigerians. “Morning folks! Are we all going to remain quiet while Saraki and Dogara’s NASS hold us captive? Sociopathy is what I am seeing in the action of NASS. No normal people can be this irresponsible. The INEC funding has not been passed & elections are barely 4 months away.” #Nigerian #Senate #NationalAssembly #Resumption #Postpone #Postponing #Campaign #NASS #Sociopath #Sociopathy #Funds #Election #Country #Announcement #Ambition #Executive #Nigerian
