NAOS members also questioned why the SouthWest lawmakers would neglect their primary assignments and abandon the mandate freely given to them by the electorates so that the masses can enjoy qualitative representations at their different constituencies,only to get engaged in mundane issues.
They said that some lawmakers of Yoruba descent who are mostly APC left their constitutional business to champion good governance instead they got enshrined in anti-democratic activities by being in the vanguard of the campaign of calumny and character assassination of the person of Obanikoro at the national assembly.
Comrade Ajayi Olumide and Comrade Atibani Adeyeye, the President and Secretary respectively in a media chat with some section of Nigerian Journalists in Lagos during the week condemned the lawmakers for making such dastardly political moves.
Both Olumide and Adeyeye alleged that the APC lawmakers taking such a very hard stance were suffering from ‘Korophobia’ and that is the main reason why they were making frantic efforts to bar Obanikoro from been screened at the national assembly.
“These lawmakers are intimidated by the rising political profile of Obanikoro and his impactful moments in the different political offices he has occupied in the past which necessitated President Goodluck Jonathan’s reappointing him as a minister again”,they argued
“Obanikoro is the change the people of Lagos wanted since they had thrown caution into the wind as they have openly expressed their fear over the possible positive impact the re-appointment of Obanikoro will bring to the people of the region”. they added.
The Student Leaders reminded the Lawmakers that they have already failed in their political animosity and adventure against Obanikoro as they have clearly demonstrated their phobia for the great impact of Obanikoro, a man who has track records of achievement in all his political offices he will bring to the masses..
“These APC Lawmakers who boasted they will make sure that Obanikoro is barred from been screened at the national assembly have shown that they had made themselves so cheap as a willing tools in the hand of some political oppressors to achieve selfish political goals”
