I re­jected Obasanjo’s N50m — Na’Al­lah

Daily Trust - - EDUCATION -

I don't think Obasanjo ac­tu­ally meant that out of the 469 'honourable' members of the Na­tional As­sem­bly none of them has moral prin­ci­ples, but that ma­jor­ity of them are not men and women of in­tegrity. Nige­ri­ans have since come to be­lieve that to be true af­ter watch­ing their dis­hon­est be­hav­iours over the years. Sen­a­tor Na'Al­lah has him­self in­ad­ver­tently proven that by ad­mit­ting that out of the pre­sum­ably three se­na­tors from Kebbi State only him­self did not col­lect the N50 mil­lion in­duce­ment Obasanjo al­legedly gave to each NASS mem­ber be­fore the 2007 pres­i­den­tial elec­tion in or­der to sub­vert the con­sti­tu­tion and pro­vide le­gal frame­work for his third term am­bi­tion. May be only Kebbi and one or two other states can claim that.
