Purchase of Imported SUVs by Senators, Insensitive

By: JOSEPH OLOWOJOBA (olowojobajoseph@netzero.net)

[dropcap]M[/dropcap]embers of the nation’s Senate and the House of representatives are constantly dragging Nigerian economic development into the mud, due to long history and high level greed and corruption, which have held the country backward for decades.

The ongoing fight against corruption by President Buhari’s administration is facing constant obstacles caused by MPs, Judges and Governors. To worsen the case, these shameless lawmakers recently acquired  over 100 imported and  overpriced Toyota Land Cruisers, which they shared among themselves .

Refusal of arms of Government to buy and drive made in Nigeria vehicles is a proof that  the greedy elements voted into power are the number one enemies of the country. And their actions are nothing short of insensitivity to the plight of Nigerian citizens, who voted them into power.

Yet we are expecting a change. Where should that start from? Is it not from among those holding leadership positions, especially law makers?

As long as the Government lacks the will to stop importation of vehicles and keeps on ordering foreign made vehicles for official use, I can’t see any change happening soon. And the economic development the present administration is talking about will remain illusive.
