Ezekwesili’s Mathematical Shocker to the National Assemby
Reading through the press interview(s) of the National Assembly on the allegation of Mrs. Oby Ezekwisili on her calculation that the National Assembly has received and wasted ?#?1tr within the past 8years, I feel the members of Senate and House of Representatives should sit back and re-package their common lies very well before dishing it to the Public.
The Senate Leader argued that the sum they received IN THE LAST 4 YEARS was ?#?150bn and the Chairman, House Committee on Media said they only receive #150bn ANNUALY. I guess one of them did not hear the resolution very well in the last meeting they had before they went on air to disseminate their ruse on an attempt to debunk Ezekwisilli’s allegation. These pose a challenge of logic on who actually was confusing the Nation between Ezekwisilli and the National Assemblies. But from the ongoing, I feel our National legislators have lost touch of their simple algebra, if to a primary school kid ?#?150b annually *8yrs is #1.2tr. The money allocated to these Non-people’s oriented Assembly is too erroneous, inaudible and sickening.
However, much as I also would have expected our “Mrs” to also address the executive lavishness of resources, she was been sentimental, maybe it’s because she once served also as an executive. That smelt an executive fraternity against the assembly members. Little wonder ASUU will continue to insist on their salary-increment, comparing themselves with the politicians.
It can only get better.
