What A Week?

Saraki-gate:

Eighty one Senators, accompanied their Principal (President) to the Code of Conduct Tribunal. Birds of the same feather flock together. Tell me your friends, and I will tell you who you are. This is total embarrassment to Nigerians (sorry, nothing embarrasses us any more) that our elected eighty one Senators (Sin-nators), will leave their duty of law making, for a day, only to go on useless solidarity with Senate President, who is facing criminal charges. This is about the second time these Senators (Sin-nators) were on a solidarity with the Senate President to the Tribunal. That means two days have been lost. To make matters worse, is seeing the useless questions some of these Senators, asked some ministerial nominees. Thank goodness, it was televised live. Nigerians now know the quality/calibre of their law makers.

Add This: Then came the news of bail of Nnamdi Kalu (Director of Radio Biafra, London). But till the time of writing, it appeared, He was still with the State Security Services, his where about is perhaps fuelling some demonstrations, both in Nigeria and overseas by his supporters. The internet is buzzing as a result.


Then This: Deji of Akure bans Eze Ndigbo title in Akure. Igbo communities closed their shops in solidarity with their leader. This caused some hardship within the town, due to the closed Igbo businesses. But following the intervention of the state government, a peace meeting was held between the Deji’s Palace, Ondo State government, and Igbo leaders. Igbos would resume their businesses. Deji of Akure, said the position of Eze Ndigbo would be considered at the council of Obas which would hold next week. So sure that the Igbos would be allowed to have their Eze Ndigbo titles, if they so desires. Eze Ndigbo title is not a threat to anyone.

And This: Finally, Ex Governor, Chibuike Amaechi (Lion of Rivers State politics) was cleared by the Senate. It was more like a foregone conclusion that he will be screened and that he would scale through.

No dull moments on Nigerian political arena.

Is it not ironical that Amaechi is cleared for ministerial position while the Senate president is standing trial for similar indictment? Nigerian governance in action right there.
