Let's look at it this way. Have watched closely and after my watch for a very long time though, I am still watching and observing and I have come to conclusion that governors position is bigger than that of the senate.
One could ask and ask again, what is the aim and the mission of former governors trying to return as senators of their constituency? I strongly believe that their people from their constituency, that they are not the ones who have voted for them neither are they the ones who will vote for this set of new ones who mostly in all their tenure has remained a no go area with unproductive activities.

The presidency has a part to play in this; he has contributed to the weakness and failure of most of these governors under him. How often has he visited the various states at least to see what his governors are doing and if need occurs, give them fire up to do projects for their people?
Who says he must be everywhere but he has failed to charge his governors in slumber to wake up and work for their people. He encouraged laziness from these governors by not checking up on them. Yet, these failures are warming up for senate house, as far as we are concern, whether they vote them or not they will buy their way in. How do we solve and stop this from happening?
Its a shame to any governor who is warming up to become a senator. Does this means there are no other people from the constituency who can represent their constituency apart from these greedy and failed governors? Who says that is only some sets of people are meant to lead? Let's hear your take our esteem readers.
