Happy weekend sir!

Daily Trust - - NEWS -

The po­lice au­thor­i­ties re­ceived an­other jibe yes­ter­day from a del­e­gate from the South­west, Se­na­tor Anthony Ade­fuye.

The del­e­gate ex­plained why the po­lice is what it is to­day. “How can the po­lice force, who when­ever they see you along the road would quickly jump and say ‘happy weekend sir,’ pro­tect your life and property?”

He said the sit­u­a­tion is so bad that the po­lice have been re­duced to a beg­gar-sta­tus be­cause of un­der­fund­ing, lack of train­ing among oth­ers. The se­na­tor didn’t stop there. He said that Nige­ri­ans should stop de­ceiv­ing them­selves that we are not trib­al­ists.

“We are trib­al­ists. Sim­ple. If not that we are trib­al­ists, why do we have the obas, emirs and the Ig­wes? They are all tribal lead­ers. We should tell our­selves the truth,” Ade­fuye said.

Not only that, the se­na­tor added an­other one, say­ing that con­trary to sub­mis­sions that for­mer gov­er­nors are buy­ing pri­vate jets, “re­li­gious lead­ers also buy pri­vate jets now from monies they col­lect from their fol­low­ers, in­clud­ing those who have no shoes.”
