Obasanjo Should Take Responsibility For Corrupting National Assembly With #GhanaMustGo, Human Rights Commission Claps Back


Nigeria’s National human rights commission in few tweets slams ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo for calling out the National Assembly led by Bukola Saraki and Yakubu Dogara in a strongly worded letter to the lawmakers.

Obasanjo had in the letter accused the lawmakers of perpetrating a culture of financial misconduct with the “opaqueness” in national assembly budgets over the years.

Recall that the ex-President during his tenure had allegedly bribed same lawmakers to have his way to govern Nigeria for another third term under the ruling government of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

Shortly after the circulation of the said letter, the human right’s commission a while ago wrote as seen below…

Obasanjo also accused the lawmakers of perpetrating constitutional breaches by not abiding by the emoluments fixed by the Revenue Mobilisation, Allocation and Fiscal Commission (RMAFC).

He wrote: “By our Constitution, the Revenue Mobilisation, Allocation and Fiscal Commission is charged with the responsibility of fixing emoluments of the three arms of government: executive, legislature and judiciary. The Commission did its job but by different disingenuous ways and devices, the legislature had overturned the recommendation of the Commission and hiked up for themselves that which they are unwilling to spelt out in detail, though they would want to defend it by force of arm if necessary. What is that?”
