This is the 20th calendar year of this civil rule and this is referred to as the ninth Assembly but we have not recorded much development in phrases of legislative morality, conscience, ethics and responsibility.

Even so, It was collected that all the lawmakers and some senior federal government officials in the National Assembly will commit not a lot less than N50 million for automobiles.

Nigerian individuals will have to not surrender on this situation. Also, we keep on being persuaded that formal corruption need to be tackled, frontally, if Nigeria should heave a sigh of reduction and reverse alone from a seeming journey to financial and social perdition. Therefore, our complete motivation and help for the war versus the ogre of corruption, Howbeit, for the fight to realize the set objectives of the present-day federal governing administration and to tallies with the wishes of majority Nigerians.”
