THE decision of Speaker Yakubu Dogara to publish his salary slip as a counter to the challenge from Governor Nasir El-Rufai has been welcomed by some sections of the polity.

However, the decision may have ended up not pleasing the critical elements of the polity, who say his personal action does not reflect the continued agitation for the opening up of the finances of the National Assembly. The details of the budget and the provisions made for those expensive foreign cars.

The National Assembly apparently would have to do more to win the love and approval of the many Nigerians who see the institution as a drain pipe of the nation’s resources. Nigerians would want to be reassured that all the funds regularly voted for the National Assembly are not going down the drain.

What of the other APC crises?

THE All Progressives Congress, APC, on Wednesday, inaugurated two committees to forge reconciliation of party members in Kogi and Bauchi States.

Governors of the two states are presently at war with party bigwigs in Abuja as seen in the face off between Governor Mohammed Abubakar and Speaker Yakubu Dogara.

However, many party members across the country are also concerned that the party seems to be waving aside the other crises in many other states including Delta, Kaduna, Akwa Ibom, Kano among others.

In Delta for instance, a golden opportunity offered the party through the crisis in the PDP to claim the vacant Warri South State Constituency 1 seat is being challenged by internal crisis in the Delta APC that led to two primaries last weekend.
