Protest Rocks NASS As Citizens Demand DSS’ Raid Of Lawmakers’ Houses

Hundreds of angry protesters, under the aegis of Citizens Action To Take Back Nigeria and Coalition of Civil Society, Wednesday paralysed activities at the main entrance of the National Assembly, asking the Department of State Services, DSS, and anti-graft agencies to raid federal lawmakers in order to recover more public funds.
The group said it was time to rescue the country from “corrupt” members of the National Assembly. Leader of the group, Ibrahim Garba Wala, said: “It is time to tell our lawmakers that we voted them in to make laws not to loot our resources. It is time to make them see that power belongs to us and we can wield it at any time. “We demand accountability and transparency from them and we will not hesitate in confiscating whatever we feel does not represent who we knew they were before they were voted in. Politics can not be seen as a means of amassing wealth. ‘’There are so many people who are in our National Assembly today who have no right whatsoever to be there because they lack even the basic qualities required in law making. It is a flawed system, but that change must start somewhere and it is starting today. “This is going to be a sustained action movement unless every member of the National Assembly who has stolen our money returns same to our treasury and where criminal activities were aided and abetted they are exposed and prosecuted, this campaign will not stop.” “We may be starting with National Assembly today but we will reach every sector until we #TakeBackNigeria. “
