“Our party has said before, that the National Assembly is the impediment to Nigeria’s democracy and the well-being of Nigerians.
“The Assembly, since the return of civil rule in 1999, has failed in its duty of prioritising the good of Nigeria and Nigerians, rather focusing on self.
“It is insensitive and a dereliction of duty for them to take long breaks and be at ease, not considering urgent matters requiring prompt attention.
“For instance, the terrorist attacks in some parts of the country, like we heard recently that terrorists killed a Nigerian citizen, Sufaira Ahmed, a humanitarian aid worker helping the internally displaced persons,” Akume said.
He added: “There is also the pressing issue of the Electoral Act that needs to be concluded; the INEC budget, and many other issues requiring attention.
“It is sad that the parliamentarians are not sensitive to these issues, rather they are more busy with personal affairs and politicking,” the ANRP official said.
