Immunity For Legislators Is Like “Buying Bullet Proof Vehicle For Armed Robbers” – Dino

imagesCAPD9591Former member of the House of Representatives and founder of Anti-Corruption Network (ACN), Otunba Dino Melaye has blasted his former colleagues for moving a step closer towards enjoying immunity – a bill towards this purpose scaled second reading Thursday during plenary.

According to Dino, “The immunity for legislators as proposed by the house of reps is a wicked and satanic agenda aimed at legalization and promotion of corruption. This amounts to buying bullet proof vehicle for armed robbers.”

Dino while expressing the mood of most Nigerians which favoured removal of immunity for all public office holders currently enjoying it said, “Our legislators are trying to take us back to the Stone Age. We are saying governors,president and Vice President should not have immunity, if you don’t intend to steal, you will not be afraid of the removal of immunity clause.

“The house of reps must as a matter of immediate urgent importance, discard this thoughtless idea that is not only selfish but myopic. Any attempt to go further will meet the resistance of the common masses that have been pushed to the wall already. Our legislators should face obsolete, draconian and analogue laws that need modern and digital touch to meet the technological and social demands of recent time. We say NO. Try us and we shall occupy NASS” he declared.

  3. Majority of our legislators are pen robbers, if not, why are they looking for immunity to hide under in order to further perpetrate thier nefarious activities.Nigerians no them all, they will all pay for it.

  4. WHAT IS IMMUNITY IF YOU ARE DOING WHAT IS RIGHT AND PLEASANT TO THE PEOPLE. IF THAT IS THE CASE, EVERYBODY INCLUDING THE ARMED ROBBERS IS ENTITLE TO SUCH IMMUNITY BECAUSE IF PEOPLE PEOPLE WE VOTED FOR CAN REQUIRE FOR SUCH THING, THEN, THERE IS NO SIN IF EVERYBODY DOES WHAT HE OR SHE LIKES WEATHER GOOD OR BAD AND THEN ASK FOR SUCH IMMUNITY. OH BEHOLD THE COMMUNITY OF LAWLESS PEOPLE

  5. If and when this political experiment that we call democracy fails we shall hold our politicians responsible. They are armed robbers rather than political leaders. Nemesis surely awaits them.

  6. I think it will be better if they legalize arm robbery, so that net we go to the pool we will know we are electing armed robbers.
