Sagay blasts Senate again, says they’re Ruthless and Merciless
The Chairman of the Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption, Itse Sagay, has again launched a broadside at the National Assembly, describing the lawmakers as “a merciless and ruthless organisation” with no value.
Sagay and the National assembly have both been in a running battle of words and will almost since the inception of the Buhari Administration.
Most recent was the tirade describing them as People of questionable character.
The Senate, in response, accusing the Professor of spreading falsehood about them and using hate speech on them, asking President Muhammadu buhari to call him to order
Prof. Sagay said the senators were simply out to ”totally suck out the blood of Nigeria for themselves because they behave like locusts.”
“They have no mercy, they have no conscience; they simply want to behave like locust just to finish everything within their environment for themselves. That’s totally unacceptable and I’m not going to relent on this thing (criticism),” he said.
“Look at the allowance they take, forget the amount. Why would a whole Senator collect money for his wardrobe? Is he naked? Does a labourer, who is taking just N18,000 a month, get it? He’s the one who needs the money for wardrobe allowance.
“But these opulent, rich, super-rich people are still collecting from you and me to clothe themselves; they’re collecting money from you and me to buy newspapers; they said they’re suffering hardship by working inside chambers that are fully air-conditioned with luxurious cushions, with people serving them left, right and centre, with food and drinks available.”
According to him, government ”could distribute the loot that constitutes these allowances among poor Nigerians.”
He said: “If you ask them what is their income they will tell you they’re earning a salary which is taxable, which is very little – about one to two million (Naira) a month.
“They will never talk about those allowances which bring their income into tens of millions. We haven’t come near what senators and House of Representatives people are really taking.
“We are talking about allowances; there are many other secret things that they are taking that have not been exposed. If you go to that gentle man (Abdulmumin Jibrin) who was suspended from the House of Representatives last year, he has a huge story to tell of the billions that nobody knows about that they’re collecting. So there will be no rest until there is justice.”
