Be courageous, recall lawmakers who are not representing you well – Bishop

24 April 2016, 12:04

Abuja – Retired reverend Emmanuel Adekunle of the Anglican Communion, Diocese of Egba, Ogun State, has reportedly called on the electorate to be "courageous" enough to "recall" non-performing lawmakers.

According to Punch, Adekunle said this while addressing journalists on the 2016 diocesan synod of the church.

He said most of the lawmakers were in the National Assembly for selfish interests. 

"The recent happenings in the Senate are shameful. I think Nigerians should be courageous enough to recall any of their representatives who are not representing them well, either in the Senate or in the House of Representatives," he was quoted as saying.

This came as reports on Sunday indicated that Nigerians had lashed out at senators on their telephone numbers, accusing them of poor performance and corruption.

This was after the Sahara Reporters leaked at least 109 phone numbers of senators online and asked constituents to express their feelings directly to those representing them in the legislature. 

Some of the senators reportedly engaged their constituents in a war of words.
