There’s tension in Nigeria’s political space. The Executive is at loggerheads with the Legislature over issues that range from the Acting President calling the Senate’s bluff as regards nominee approval to Babatunde Fashola‘s verbal exchange with the House over his ministry’s 2017 budget allocation.
The most intense scene of the political drama has to be the scary attempt by a few senators to snatch the government and hand Acting President powers over to Saraki.
Suspended lawmaker, Hon Abdulmumin Jibrin who has developed an interest in monitoring the relationship between Acting President Osinbajo and the National Assembly and has, on one occasion, tilted towards the former has proffered a different approach to dealing with these issues.
He began on Twitter this morning first by declaring his stance on the Magu/Senate/Osinbajo contention and we’re not surprised he’s on the Osinbajo/Magu side.
Much more interesting was his advice to Osinbajo on the senators’ ill-fated attempt to declare Saraki Acting President.
See how he indirectly named Senate President Bukola Saraki, DSP Ike Ekweremadu, a certain number 10 whom we’re yet to figure out and the rest of the ilk of troublemakers.
