Do We Have Lawmakers At All?

We have voted them in to represent us in the Senate, House of Representatives or state house of assemblies.

Who do they represent?

Executives,

Themselves or

The masses?

I guess it is safe to assume that is their goal every year, making money, more money and most money.

Lol, i can imagine David Mark and Tumbawal whistling 'we making money this year' as they make their way to the chamber every year.

great idea.now that the federal govt wont allow for the weakening of the centre ,what do we masses do? tell me.

if we demonstrate they rollout the army to shoot at site,if we go on total strike they hammer out their fangs at the leaders of the strike, if we re-call, they rig the recall, if we go to court they disobey court orders, it we MEND/EGBESU-LISE, they call us villians and roll out the fighters and tankers. we wait for their term to finish, they change the constitution and get more terms,

so my brother,tell me, what do we do

U cant wish away God like that. God took care of abacha,if u think the press or courts did him in,think again.

so may be we get back to square 1;God.

Is there a provision in the Nigerian constitution for a recall? If so, would it be asking too much of the electorate to excise their constitutional right to recall these "lawbreakers?"

Well we elect this people and we all know what they are capable of doing, and I guess we paying the price for not doing our home work before we elect them, every thing that looks good is not always good.

Some of them like this woman, Abike Dabiri, who used to be a newscaster, are worthy of respect. But the popular belief is that the vast majority of them are crooks. Why? Because of how they got into the office.
