A socio-political organization, Campaign for Dignity in Governance, CDG, has called on Nigerians to halt the National Assembly’s annual legislative high handedness on budget passage, reminding them of the confidence reposed in them by the people.
The group, in a statement signed by its National President, Comrade Razaq Olokoba observed that, it has become the antics of the federal lawmakers that “we hold in high esteem, to use the budget passage period as a trap to hold the country hostage hiding under the excuses that are suspected to be selfish and unpatriotic.”
The group noted with dismay, the way and manner the budget on Power was handled by the legislators recently when they unduly embarrassed the Minister in charge, Mr Babatunde Raji Fashola, SAN.
“The undue embarrassment became more worrisome when viewed against the background that Minister’s performance in his Ministry in the recent time has won him accolade from the public who are convinced that power has become more stable under him,” the group stated
