Nigerian Wage Telephone War against Senators


Nigerians, who have laid their hands on the telephone numbers of lawmakers representing them at the Senate, have declared a telephone war on their senators by bombarding their lines with unending calls  and text messages.
Those who have called senators representing their senatorial districts accused the lawmakers of poor performance and corruption.

The constituents, who decried poor representation by their senators, alleged that the lawmakers rebuffed their requests.SUNDAY PUNCH also learnt that some of the senators engaged their constituents in wars of words.
SaharaReporters, had published the telephone numbers of most of the 109 senators in the National Assembly, asking their constituents to express their feelings directly to those representing them in the legislature.
The Senate had attempted to amend the laws establishing the Code of Conduct Tribunal and the Code of Conduct Bureau, a development that drew the ire of the populace, before the upper chamber of the National Assembly dropped the bill after passing the second reading.
Criticisms are also trailing a proposed Grazing Bill seeking to establish ranches across the country to stem criminal activities of nomadic Fulani herdsmen.
The Senate had denied that such a bill exists.
