Reno Omokri has said he is so disappointed in Senator Ibn Na’allah who begged President Buhari to “tolerate us (the Senate) as your children.” According the former Media aide of ex-president Goodluck Jonathan, the statement reads nothing short of ‘democratic illiteracy’.
Speaking via his twitter handle, he stressed that, the Nigerian Senate is meant to coordinate the government with the executive, but not to be SUBORDINATE to them.

Many of his followers on the platform agreed with him on this stance as they all lambasted the senators for only being interested in their allowance and nothing else.
What their reactions were like
Most of those sleeping senators don’t even know there reason for being there. They’re just interested in the allowances… Nothing to offer.

But we come here every day to point accusing finger at that the executive alone and leave the senate. I think we should start looking at government as a whole and start asking questions from head to toe
