Yes, it’s just* a picture, but one that actually says a lot…one of those few pictures with a thousand words and give a million SMHs. …out of this thousand words, I’d remark one: – this is a receipt of our procured mistakes.

Bukola Saraki
How gaademn senatorial. …

Well, moving forward, I’ll try to keep this quite simple.

Since the inauguration of this 8th Senate, nothing major has been done. Argue with your teeth.

Since the inauguration of this 8th Senate, it has seemed as if we voted for drama…no, melodrama.

Since the inauguration of this 8th Senate, it’s been a back and forth macabre dance between calls for preposterous bills and phoney motions.

Since the inauguration of this 8th Senate, commonsense has left the hallowed chamber and moved to twitter.

Since the inauguration of this 8th Senate, we been made to remember what we shouldn’t have forgotten – that, the Senate house has been turned to a retirement benefit abode for *deserving* politicians.

Since the inauguration of this 8th Senate, we been made to remember what we shouldn’t have forgotten – that, mostly, in the heads of these Agbada armadillos guys, the synonym for “Senator” is “lucre”! not lawmaking.

Since the inauguration of this 8th Senate, we’ve seen shame go less, solidarity for a Seriki of graft -Saraki.

For this dance of tune of shame for Serikin Graft Saraki, the 8th Senate has sunk into a nadir of disrepute all to protect their commontheft good…unsurprisingly.

120 billion naira? For this bunch of actually yeasty human beings? Haba mana! Nigerians are about to #OccupyNASS, but…

That’s not the solution… Hmmmn, I’ve always said it, that this nation will not get better with hurried nsogbu-nsogbu moves like the #OccupyNASS, that tend to mimic revolution or the needed change.

It’s not a Saraki situation, it’s beyond Saraki, it is a systematic problem, the system that produced a Saraki, balogun Dino, and the other foot soldiers whose brains are commonly hare.

You can’t indeed want to cure a systematic/systemic disease with a topical balm;

Maybe only few will understand this…leave Saraki, and scrap the Senate.

If for the sake of reducing the degree of putridity that oozes outta Nigeria, scrap this Senate.

If for the sake of stopping these unsolicited dose of tragicomedy from supposed lawmakers, scrap this Senate.

If for the sake of saving 120 billion naira, scrap this Senate.

Countries with both hindsight and foresight have done it…Senegal and some other countries. Check here.

So, why not in Nigeria? Why keep up with this bicameral show of lameness, lucre-lust and money-monging.

Abeg, we can’t shout. If this Change is thinking straight, steps should be initiated in this administration to cut this crap and scrap the Senate.
