Lucidity must be a fundamental goal of a progressive democracy in any society in the world.
It is a pitiable experience at the era of a supposed elites who became a liability to the country that trusts them and voted them in the chamber built for transparencies, checks and balances of the societal value and interest of the society,
The 8th Senate is the untold calamity Nigerians ever experienced since the existence of democracy. I find the senators idle and confused both mentally and morally. We haven’t seen them implementing what the masses expect as dividends and incentives from Democracy. They do not have the sympathy of the masses and they are not service-oriented.
No wonder Nigerians call them the greedy landlords, we ought to gain from their daily sittings and be proud of their collective actions to better the lots of Nigerians, but what the good Citizens are enjoying from them today is hypocrisy and one sided constitution which favoured them and destroy their constituents.
Psychologically it is the leaders’ job to initiate connection with the people through honesty and undoubtedly transparency. How does a senator who won just 1/3 a particular state in an election to become a senator, with the a president who won the vote of millions of votes from across all parts of the counry.
We all knew the formidable empire of the ancient Egypt under the watch of the mighty Pharaoh, when Moses came on board, Pharaoh’s power fizzled out.
Our distinguished senators should watch what they are doing because the day of reckoning will soon come.
