A former Kaduna Central Senator, Shehu Sani, has said that undue begging for money, contracts, employment, and other favours, are some of the reasons some heads of Federal Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) are disrespecting federal lawmakers in Nigeria.
Among the reasons he gave on his Twitter handle, was the legislators’ incessant requests for the heads of MDAs to appear before them over trivial matters.
According to Senator Sani: “Needless summons by committees. Unofficial visits by Committee heads to MDAs. The subservient badge of the legislators. The integrity of the committee chair and members.
“Knowledge of the questionable circumstance behind the legislator’s election, history and presence in the NASS. The knowledge that the legislators can only bark and can’t bite.”
Recall that Senator Shehu Sani lost his battle to return to the Senate chamber in 2019 elections and is currently facing corruption charges labeled against him by the EFCC.
