As recently reported, the distribution of the first batch of the 108 brand new Sport Utility Vehicles (Land Cruisers) by the Nigerian Senate to Senators that has naturally attracted deserved criticisms and resentful attention of right thinking citizens is an immoral and insensitive act that could only have emanated from the Nigerian Senate, a Senate that appears apparently to be hell-bent on achieving a record-breaking feat in the human history of corruption.
The Executive Chairman of the Coalition Against Corrupt Leaders, CACOL, while corroborating the foregoing position of CACOL said that “the Nigerian Senate has severally demonstrated their greed and shamelessness via their lust for luxurious frivolities and insensitiveness to what the scale of preference should be at this trying time for Nigerians and Nigeria. Through immoral and bared-faced unethical means, the Senate, have cleverly legitimized their ineptitude in parliamentarianism by infecting the process with their vagaries, avarice and innate corrupt tendencies; this informs why at this point the Senate can contrive the idea of purchasing exotic jeeps when basic needs of the vast majority are not been paid any attention.”
“We have in Nigeria today, some Civil servants both at the State and Federal levels that have not been paid salaries for months now, there are doctors, lecturers and teachers threatening to embark on strike actions if their allowances are not paid and demands not met. The flipside and bad side of the story is that how come so-called representatives of people prioritize frivolities over very basic needs of the people they are supposed to be representing?”, asked Mr. Debo Adeniran, as he continued to lampoon the Senate in his reaction to the unwarranted purchase of 108 exotic jeeps by the body.
Furthermore, the Executive Chairman of CACOL said that “when the head of an institution is rotten, the whole body gets infected, the Head of the Senate have too much corrupt baggage that would inadvertently impact corruptly on every approval and decision to that comes out from that already desecrated Chambers. And this is why CACOL has been and is still insisting on the resignation of Dr. Bukola Saraki as President of the Senate on moral and ethical grounds. Nigerians need to insist on that necessity, and be pro-active about rejecting the toga of shame being foisted on Nigeria as a country within the comity of nations. That is the patriotic duty and a clarion call to all Nigerians to salvage our country. It is our country, let us take it back!”
