Some Residents of South-South region have said that their Senators who voted against electronic transmission of results by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, do not deserve to represent them anymore in the Senate and should vacate the Red Chamber.
Citizens, who spoke with Saturday
Vanguard, weekend, said the group of lawmakers were not on the side of the people and they have no reason tolerating them.
Former governor of Oyo and Taraba states during the military reign of late General Sani Abacha, Dr. Amen Oyakhire, said: “In a democracy, there is time for election and when that time comes, you consider them and throw them out of the place because they are supposed to act in the interest of the people they represent, so if we see them not representing our interest, in another election, we vote them away. That is the way to behave in a democracy.”
President, Ijaw Professionals Association (Homeland Chapter), Barrister Iniruo Wills, screamed: “On the stone-age vote against electronic transmission of results, one wonders if it is a confession by most NASS members that they were not duly voted for. If not for the abysmal awareness amongst the electorate, the recall of some of them should have been initiated. But the political class has so weaponized mass poverty and apathy that I would not hold my breath.”
