The delegates at the National Conference seemed to be unanimous in blaming the military for every ill bedeviling the country. The next punching bags are political office holders such as senators and particularly state governors.
Dozens delegates presented passionate speeches condemning why senators and House of Representatives members, despite all pressures, have refused to make public the actual amount they collect as salaries, earned and accrued allowances, constituency allowances, oversight allowances, among other known and unknown perks of office.
But surprisingly, the same delegates who relish in blaming others are have also refused to allow their monetized allowances announce at the plenary despite calls by some of them to clear the air on the exact monies they are entitled for the three months assignment.
This not enough, some of the delegates have been “explaining” the need to commence executive sessions where issues close to their hearts would be discussed without the presence of journalists.
A northern public interest lawyer the other wanted journalists gagged for publishing pictures of sleeping delegates. Another northern former federal lawmaker and minister, has been at the fore front of this “executive sessions” campaigners. He is apparently not tired of explaining its “expediency.”
They should ask the lawmakers among them whether this would work. If not anything, they would be made to contend with dozens versions of what actually transpired during the secret meetings.
