Corruption: Tinubu Warns ACN Legislators Against Joining Bandwagon

Following the allegation of corrupt practices involving National Assembly members,the National Leader of Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has warned legislators elected on the platform of the party not to join the bandwagon.

Speaking at the 8th Legislative- Executive Parley held in Lagos, Tinubu who was represented by the state party chairman of the ACN, Otunba Henry Ajomale charged the lawmakers and elected politicians to serve people instead of pursuing selfish agenda.

He urged Nigerian lawmakers at the Federal level to brace up for the challenges of law-making and give quality representation.

The former governor of Lagos State who bemoaned scandals rocking House of Representatives, said the recent development has shown that the law-makers are not truly representing the people.

He said, “It is unfortunate today that there is so much scandal going on within the National Assembly and it has become scandalous in the international forum.

“But I must congratulate ACN members for distinguishing themselves and doing what is expected of them as the opposition as well as giving them a run for their money. I urge you not to join the bandwagon and soon we would get to our destination”.

He added that the ACN had established its presence in the polity, assuring that, “By 2015, we would be in the majority. “There is no way we can do that except we have dedicated members and machinery to protect the masses that they represent”.
