“You are a bunch of unarmed robbers” – OBJ tells NASS

Ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has described members of the National Assembly as a bunch of unarmed robbers. This
is coming after he accused the lawmakers of corruptly enriching
themselves by appropriating funds for constituency projects.

In its response to the former President’s comment, the House of Reps spokesman, Abdulrazak Namdas dismissed his comments, describing him as the father of corruption in Nigeria.
Speaking further, Obasanjo said that the Nigerian lawmakers are one of the highest paid in Nigeria.
The
former President also said that he will not stop criticising the
National Assembly, despite their constant verbal attacks against him.
OBJ said “The way we are going about spending all our revenue to pay overhead, we will not develop.
“And
we will have ourselves to blame. Ninety percent of revenue is used to
pay overhead, allowances, salaries and not much is left for capital
development.
“It is even worse
for the National Assembly. They will abuse me again but I will never
stop talking about them. They are a bunch of unarmed robbers.
“They are one of the highest paid in the world where we have 75 percent of our people living in abject poverty.

“They
will abuse me tomorrow and if they don’t, maybe they are sleeping. The
behaviour and character of the National Assembly should be condemned and
roundly condemned.”
Former President Olusegun Obasanjo said this on Thursday, August 17, 2017, during a book launch at the University of Ibadan.

L. A Prisoners Infect Themselves With Coronavirus To Get Early Release (VIDEO)

Published

By

A group of silly L.A area prison inmates were very eager to contract the dreaded coronavirus .

They attempted this because they believed that would trigger their ticket out of prison.

According to the L.A. County Sheriff Alex Villanueva who made the startling revelation Monday, said about twenty-four (24) inmates at the Pitchess Detention Center in Castaic attempted (and somewhat succeeded, apparently) to infect themselves way back in mid-April 2020.

The Sheriff revealed that their department saw an increase in spike in confirmed cases out of nowhere.

He said that when they investigated, they found a high number of inmates living in one block of the prison appeared to be deliberately trying to infect each other with COVID-19 any way they could from behind bars.

When Alex Villanueva played the surveillance footages he and his team combed through carefully , and it showed several inmates hanging out in a common area and passing around what Alex described as a hot cup of water, as well as one face mask they’d each put on all in hopes of getting sympathy from a judge to spring them from the facility and let them go home.

But it turns out, their little ploy worked but, only halfway.

Villanueva reported that 21 of the inmates (out of 50 in the block) caught the ‘Coronavirus.

“What they won’t catch is a break” said the Sheriff.

The Buhari administration has been known for enforcing the Nigerian people to patronize Nigerian made goods though without much strategy to make life easier while this transition to economic growth is enforced. Many Nigerians have tagged it a harsh move that is insensitive and inhumane but moreso, Reno Omokri has singled out signals of hypocrisy in the President of Nigeria by outlining certain traits of family moves of the President that shows that he(Buhari) as the No.1 citizen has no regards for anything made in Nigeria but yet wants other Nigerians to embrace Nigerian made goods.

His kids schooled in England. His wife just returned from a 3 month UK stay. His daughter gave birth to his grandchild in Spain (made in Spain), yet
