Former Governors Are The Problem Of Nigerian Senate – Donald Duke
Former Governor of Cross River State, Donald Duke, has charged at former Nigerian Governors, saying the Nigerian Senate may not be peaceful until they stop becoming lawmakers after leading their states.
“The Senate won’t find peace until former governors stop making it a retirement home,” Duke tweeted.
There are about 20 former state governors in the Senate, including Senate President Bukola Saraki, who was a two-term governor of Kwara State.
Until his resignation on Tuesday, Senator Godswill Akpabio, a former governor of Akwa Ibom State was the minority leader.
Other former governors in the Senate include Adamu Abdullahi, who leads a pro-Buhari caucus, Rabiu Kwankwaso, Jonah Jang, George Akume, Joshua Dariye, who was recently convicted of corruption, and Aliyu Wamakko.
