APC chieftain says NASS shutdown is against national interest
AN All Progressive Congress (APC) senatorial candidate in Jigawa state, Honourable Yusif Shitu Galambi, accused the NASS leadership of Senate President Bukola Saraki, and Speaker, House of Assembly, Hon Yakubu Dogara, of lack of nationalism by shutting down the National Assembly, which appeared to be totally against the national interest.
Galambi expressed his dismay on how the two leaders prioritised their personal interest above the collective national interest.
According to him, the National Assembly members were elected to make laws and bills that would help in driving the nation to achieve greater economic development, social and political stability, but the action of Senator Bukola and Hon Dogara appeared to be negating it.
He noted that there are many pending issues that required the National Assembly’s attention, but because they have been closed down for a month all the related national interest have been halted.”
Hon Galambi then called on the leaders of NASS to rethink on the way they are abusing the trust given to them.
Galambi who is also aspiring for All Progressive Congress (APC) senatorial at Jigawa Central expressed his satisfaction for the arrangement and preparation put in place for conducting the primaries election in the state.
