Morning folks! Are we all going to remain quiet while Saraki and Dogara's NASS hold us captive? Sociopathy is what I am seeing in the action of NASS. No normal people can be this irresponsible. The INEC funding has not been passed & elections are barely 4 months away.

What the heck is going on? Is the Nation put on hold for Bukola Saraki @bukolasaraki to have time to go round on his Presidential ambition tour? He wants to rule over Nigeria but not interested in putting Nigeria first? https://t.co/CfsNOBiB57

Nigerian Youths, Are We Really Cursed , Or Are We The Cause ?
How can we allow one single individual @bukolasaraki to hold us to a Ransom ?? Bukola Saraki unilaterally shutdown NASS just for his personal aggrandizement .
For how long are we going to fold our hands ?Let's wake up
