Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide had described the recent mockery stance of the President of Nigeria’s Senate over the resolutions of southern Governors as affirmative evidence that ” Senate President is a rubber stamp of the presidency and biased umpire ” and deserves to be impeached without further delay.
This was contained in a statement signed by Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro, the Secretary-General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide.
According to Mazi, Senate President, Ahmed Lawan’s inflammatory Comments on restructuring, had singlehandedly bestowed him as the most ” unpopular and rubber stamp ” Senate President in the history of the Senate, who stood against collective liberties and yearnings of Nigerians to re-address the faulty system and structural imbalance of the country, Lawan and co-travellers were caught unawares by the call for a change of status quo which North had benefited from the pains and shortchanged people of the south.
The call for restructuring and ban of open grazing was bitter pills for the North to swallow, and opposition against the southern Governors resolutions reinforced our belief and suspicions that, the North like the manner they destroyed the reports of the 2014 Constitutional conference, will leave no stone unturned to frustrate the move to restructure Nigeria, for sinister economic reasons, unhealthy dominance and parochial policies against the south.
Senator Ahmed Lawan had squandered the goodwill of Nigerians and ought to relinquish his position as President of the Senate and resign honourably for nepotistic Comments capable of creating disaffection amongst Nigerians since he hasn’t shown remorseful and apologetic rhetoric of his comments, Senate should save itself from a moral standpoint to get rid of ineptitude and rubber stamp leadership, and replace Senator Lawan with a vibrant personality to revamp the independence of the Senate from being an appendage of the Presidency.
