APC chieftain urges NASS rise against impunity, injustice, others in 2020

An All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain in Oyo state, Asiwaju Rotimi Ajanaku, on Tuesday charged members of the National Assembly to rise against all forms of impunity, injustice and lawlessness against Nigerians in 2020.

The APC chieftain who gave the charge in Ibadan while speaking with newsmen attributed the incessant harassment and humiliation of innocent Nigerians, contempt and disrespect for the rule of law exhibited by the personnel of security agencies in 2019 to weaknesses of the legislators, especially the National Assembly.

He said the  weaknesses of the legislators could be traced to “corruption, incompetency and desperation of the people we elected to speak for and on behalf of us”.

“Legislators have abandoned the people who elected them to their various offices, they now fight for personal gains and desperate as well as to retain their positions after the constitutional term of 4years per term. This action has sold them to slavery and rendered them incapacitated to fight against injustice in Nigeria.”, he said.

Continuing he said:  “The rights of Nigerians as stated in the chapter 4 of the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999 as amended are not violated. Perhaps we are ignorance of the fact that no serious minded person would invest his hard-earned money in a country where personnel of security agencies keep rebelling against court orders, displaying act of thuggery and exercise mad passion for lawlessness.”

“Legislators should wake up and live up to expectation to avoid situation where people will rise to defend themselves and the democracy that our past heroes laid down their lives for. When you stretch the limits of the people beyond bearable, expect them to fight back and also be ready to bear or responsible for whatever consequences that come from their barbaric actions against harmless and innocent citizens of this great country”.
