Former Minister of Education, Oby Ezekwesili has backlashed Senate President Bukola Saraki for saying the process of recalling Dino Melaye from the Senate was a waste of time.
Saraki during plenary on Tuesday had stated that a lot of time was being wasted on the issue while important things are neglected.
He said; “I really don’t know why a lot of efforts are being wasted on this issue. These efforts should have gone on more important things. Eventually, it must come back here for us to certify whether it is satisfactory.”
However in a series of tweets on Wednesday, Ezekwesili said Saraki’s statement shows he does not respect Nigerians.
“No serious leader of any institution of Democracy in a serious country that respects its citizens speaks like you.
“Many of us have no dog in the Kogi recall fight. BUT, it is a DEMOCRATIC PROVISION. Don’t talk down on citizens.”
