You read things like this, you have no choice but to wonder-what kind of a country really is Nigeria? Right from the moment of swearing-in till the present day David Mark senate has been that of endless scandal. The fact that no one ever asks any question seem to have emboldened this Benue State retired soldier and politician.
No good news ever comes out of the Nigerian senate. They legislate only for their own comfort to the detriment of Nigerians. Their four year tenure ends next year, yet they cannot pick on a single item of useful legislation they have made to improve the life of the ordinary Nigerian. The freedom of information bill- a comprehensive piece of legislation that could have helped with the fight against corruption was thwarted by David Mark and his gang. They award themselves stupendous allowances the most absurd of which is "constituency allowance" - a whopping 45million naira quarterly that is unaudited untaxed free money. Which third world country ever develops like this This profligacy is unsustainable can only precede economic chaos.
Now David Mark senate has chosen to embark on another path aside from corruption and economic ruination-Wilful disobedience of court order and contempt for the rule of law. The very law that establishes the senate and allows David Mark to be its president. I am not a lawyer but the above gives more than a few grounds for DM to be committed to prison without further delay. This is a disgrace to all Nigerians. By the way the electoral appeal court in Nigeria is the final arbiter on all electoral disputes not the supreme court.
