The Senate wing of the National Assembly was in frenzy on Monday, January 29, 2018, following an “elevator fight” between Ekiti lawmaker, Senator Abiodun Olujimi and a legislative staff.

Despite being a plenary-free day, today happened to be a very busy day at the National Assembly.
This was because the Senate committee on petroleum (downstream) had fixed it’s investigative hearing on petrol scarcity almost at the same time with the meeting of Parliamentary Staff Association of Nigeria (PASAN).
The PASAN members were meeting ahead of a planned strike.

The elevator fight

Elevators at the National Assembly are installed in pairs with bold inscription on the them. While one is expected to aid the mobility of lawmakers up and down the building, the other is reserved for ‘ordinary’ Nigerians.
Trouble started when Senator Olujimi, who was on her way to the subsidy hearing, sighted the PASAN member in the elevator reserved for lawmakers.

However, there are no strict adherence to this rule.
When both elevators are free – no lawmaker or operators – ‘ordinary’ citizens would use both machines.
This was the case of the PASAN member.
Luck, however, ran out of the PASAN member as Senator Olujimi caught him in the act.
The Ekiti lawmaker had questioned his decision to use the elevator reserved for lawmakers.
An argument broke out and Senator Olujimi “asked her aide to slap the PASAN member”, a source told Pulse.
The PASAN member staff retaliated by “slapping Senator Olujimi” and not her aide, the source added.

This sparked mixed reactions with argument largely against the lawmaker.
While some PASAN members had threatened to attack the lawmaker, others resolved to start using both elevators, Pulse learnt.
Videos and pictures of the event were highly prohibited by the security officers.
Both the lawmaker and the PASAN member were unavailable for comments on the squabble.
But speaking to journalists at the after the hearing, Senator Olujimi categorically said she would take up the matter with the Police.

Buhari not in charge

Senator Olujimi who is the deputy minority whip had accused President Muhammadu Buhari of losing grip over his government.
Olujimi, accused a certain ‘cabal’ of running the Buhari administration.
She urged President Buhari to call “his boys” to order.

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.

Reno Omokri ‘s tweet reads:

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
@MBuhari
