A former Kaduna Central lawmaker, Shehu Sani, has accused lawmakers in various state assemblies in Nigeria of docility.

Some governors will be vacating their offices on May 29, either as a result of the completion of two terms or because they lost out in the March 18 governorship election.

There have been rumours that some of the outgoing governors have been acquiring expensive cars, houses, and other items with less than three weeks to the end of their terms.

This, Sani said, was possible because the state houses of assembly are subservient to the governors, thereby approving whatever is presented to them.

“Outgoing governors are allocating billions to themselves because there is always a docile and subservient states house of assemblies to approve of it,” Sani said.
