N37bn for NASS Renovation: Our Politicians Are Unitedly Raping Us – Japhet Omojuwa

Social media commentator, Japhet Omojuwa has described the approval of N37bn for the renovation of the National Assembly complex by President Muhammadu Buhari as constituted Brigandage.

According to the social media commentator, the said amount will elevate 4 Federal Universities to a world-class standard, and it can also get the government at least two world-class hospitals that would stem the medical exodus.

It was noted that the amount, which was included in the 2020 budget, is not part of the N128 billion allocated for the National Assembly for next year.

According to the Senate President, Ahmed Lawan, the money is part of the 2020 budget of the Federal Capital Development Administration.

Speaking with journalists in Abuja on Monday,  Lawan said there had been no major renovation of the National Assembly building for 20 years, and many parts of the property had become dilapidated.

“We met the president and (it was) related the condition of the complex. The president responded and said he was going to renovate the complex. The phase one renovation will commence – the chambers and committee rooms in the white house.

While describing the act as cannibalistic madness, Omojuwa said the amount is another thing Nigerians can work together to fight as the politicians continue to rape the electorates.

He added that this is not about the political parties, but a united set of people who prefer to eat up the future of Nigerians without remorse.

While noting that the renovation of the National Assembly is the last thing on the average Nigerian’s mind, he said they want a country they can stop trying to escape, which supports their dreams and aspirations.
