The Progressive People’s Alliance (PPA) on Thursday expressed disappointment over the spate of allegations of bribery rocking the National Assembly.
The National Chairman, Sam Nkire, who made the condemnation in an interview in Abuja, described the allegations “as not only shameful but also a terrible commentary on the nation’s legislative institution”.
According to him, it is quite disgraceful that the leadership of both legislative houses have never sanctioned members implicated in any of these allegations.
He called on the leadership of the National Assembly to redeem its image by suspending all those members who had cases to answer.
The chairman said this had become imperative in order not to leave the public with the impression that it condoned corruption.
“ The NASS should realise that the public is anxious to know what steps it will take in respect of its members implicated in the power, SEC and fuel subsidy probes,” he said.
He urged the Federal Government to make sure that those involved in looting the country did not go unpunished.
