  1. What are they doing when they have not shut down. Let them go to their respective states so that Nigeria can use their salary and allowances in building infrastructure.

  2. They should go ahead and shut down, by so doing Nigeria will save the huge amount of money we have been wasting on them bcos there is no way we can still be paying them when they are not working. Honestly, it will good riddance to bad rubbish as Nigerians are not getting anything from them now they say they are in session bcos all they have been doing all this while is taking care of themselves alone!

  4. I had always says it that the current national assembly is the most insensitive and most insincere in the history of democratic governance in this country, if with the various chalenges we are going through, the one that touch them most is the outstanding elections in a state where hundreds of lives has been lost over the past elections and the only solution they have is to shut down. Let them go ahead. I wish them all the best. They should just know that no one is going to miss them. 'Bundle of Rascas'.
