Concerned Nigerian advocates revolt against Nass

A concerned Nigerian, Bunmi Awoyemi, has advocated that Nigerians should rise and revolt against the National Assembly Members (NASS) for failing to allow the Federal Government-led Buhari make meaningful progress in the fight against corruption.

This is contained in a chat sent via social media, where Bunmi urged Nigerians not to sit back and watch the Nass slow down or completely hinder the anti-corruption fight by President Mohammadu Buhari, but rather engage themselves in the revolution that must be unleashed on the Nass members.

In the chat, Bunmi expressed: “Many people believe erroneously that Buhari is not fighting corruption; that none of the people arrested, detained and accused by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has been sentenced to prison.”

She said: “Buhari wants to set up an anti-corruption court and the bill called the Special Criminal Courts Act has been submitted to the Nass since last year, but they have refused to pass it into law.”

She wrote: “The same thing is happening to the Whistle Blower Protection Act meant to protect whistleblowers from injury, death, economic sabotage, and job termination.

“The Senate told the government point blank that they will not pass the Anti-Money Laundering Act into law. The bill has been with the Senate since 2015,” saying the refusal to pass the Anti-corruption bill by the Senate will not allow for easy access of funds amounting to about N2 trillion recovered by the EFCC that the government cannot touch until the final judgement at the Supreme Court.

She therefore pointed finger at the NASS, referring to them as the true enemy of the Nation, thereby asking Nigerians from all walks of life to speak against the evil being perpetrated by the two legislative bodies.
