The lawmaker representing Kogi West Senatorial District disclosed this while contributing to “a bill for an Act to establish the National Electoral Offences Commission and for Other Related matters”. He said;

“Mr. President, when people of questionable character become leaders, then what is the future of that country. In fact, I am compelled to say, military era is better than Nigeria’s democracy currently.

“When you talk about maladministration and misappropriation of public funds, it emanates from people who have criminal records, people who have no background were elected or forced themselves into power.

“Mr. President, this is one of the best bills that we must all support.

“We are living witnesses to bad governance and bad representation in parliament. We must support this bill to bring good people into power, not charlatans, not ragamuffin.

“People who have criminal records come to the National Assembly to make laws.”
