CACOL blasts Senators for sharing 108 Land Cruiser jeeps

CACOL blasts Senators for
sharing 108 Land Cruiser jeeps


– The executive chairman of CACOL, Debo
Adeniran has said the Senate is hell-bent on
achieving a record-breaking feat in the
human history of corruption
– Says the head of the Senate has too much
corrupt baggage that would inadvertently
impact corruptly on every approval and
decision to that comes out from that
Chamber
– Adeniran says the issue of corruption is
why CACOL has been insisting on the
resignation of Bukola Saraki as president of
the Senate on moral and ethical grounds
The Coalition Against Corrupt Leader,
(CACOL) has blasted the Senate for
distributing 108 land cruiser jeeps to its
members.
The executive chairman of CACOL, Debo
Adeniran said the Senate appeared
apparently hell-bent on achieving a record-
breaking feat in the human history of
corruption.
Adeniran, who spoke in Lagos said the
Nigerian Senate has severally demonstrated
their greed and shamelessness via their lust
for luxurious frivolities and insensitiveness to
what the scale of preference should be at
this trying time for Nigerians and Nigeria.
“Through immoral and bared-faced unethical
means, the Senate, have cleverly legitimized
their ineptitude in parliamentarianism by
infecting the process with their vagaries,
avarice and innate corrupt tendencies; this
informs why at this point the Senate can
contrive the idea of purchasing exotic jeeps
when basic needs of the vast majority are not
been paid any attention.
“We have in Nigeria today, some Civil servants
both at the State and Federal levels that have
not been paid salaries for months now, there
are doctors, lecturers and teachers threatening
to embark on strike actions if their allowances
are not paid and demands not met.
“The flipside and bad side of the story is that
how come so-called representatives of people
prioritize frivolities over very basic needs of
the people they are supposed to be
representing?”, asked Mr. Debo Adeniran, as
he continued to lampoon the Senate in his
reaction to the unwarranted purchase of 108
exotic jeeps by the body,” he said.
Adeniran added that “ when the head of an
institution is rotten, the whole body gets
infected, the Head of the Senate has too much
corrupt baggage that would inadvertently
impact corruptly on every approval and
decision to that comes out from that already
desecrated Chambers.
And this is why CACOL has been and is still
insisting on the resignation of Dr. Bukola
Saraki as President of the Senate on moral
and ethical grounds. Nigerians need to insist
on that necessity, and be pro-active about
rejecting the toga of shame being foisted on
Nigeria as a country within the comity of
nations. That is the patriotic duty and a clarion
call to all Nigerians to salvage our country. It
is our country, let us take it back.”
